Child minding (6 months to 5 years)

UCCC Society is pleased to be providing child minding services for Congress 2016. The UCCC Society is a non-profit organization established in 1976 which operates two Accredited Child Care Centres within the University of Calgary campus. At the University Child Care Centre (UCCC), we believe that play is imperative during the early years of a child’s life. The need to imagine, create, explore and discover is at the core of a child and teaches them to relate to others and the world around them. Our goal is to provide an exemplary, enriched program that supports and encourages the unique potential within each child. We do this by promoting the natural process of play in an enriched setting that provides optimal conditions for each child to grow, develop, and learn at his or her individual pace.

Cost: $60/day
Includes: AM & PM snack and hot lunch
