Children’s Centre

There is nothing more empowering than teaching our children how to unlock their innate resiliency, release trauma and return to calm

The Children’s Centre is a licensed, accredited daycare located in SW Calgary. We provide 28 spaces for children aged 19 months to six years. We welcome all children and their families to be part of our beautiful, new facility. Our programming incorporates leading edge child development and brain development research and is led by caring child support professionals who are experienced and professionally qualified for their role. The Children’s Centre is the first program of its kind to offer an integrated program suited to meet the needs of not only the typically developing child but also the needs of children that have been exposed to family violence and other forms of trauma.

Sonshine has long desired to do more for young children. Children who have been exposed to family violence are more vulnerable than their peers to social, emotional, physiological and cognitive development problems that can have long-term effects on their family, friends and community. Our focus is to prevent the cycle of violence from continuing by intervening early on in a child’s development, so they can grow into healthy, positive youth and adults.

The Sonshine Children’s Centre offers:

  • Full time, regular child care
  • Bright, friendly décor and a variety of educational resources and toys
  • Individual assessment of children’s developmental and attachment needs and abilities
  • Therapeutic support as needed, including group and dyad (two child) play therapy sessions
  • “Theraplay” based group activities to encourage attachment and self-regulation

Rates are equal to or slightly below current market pricing for child care. Subsidies are also available for qualifying families. For more information or to inquire about registering your child, please contact:
