Rolling Closures

Today, we stand at a crossroads, facing challenges that could reshape the future of childcare in our province. As we navigate these uncertain times, AACE is evaluating strategic responses to address the significant concerns surrounding the funding and policies of the Canada-Wide Early Learning and Child Care (CWELCC) Agreement.

We extend a heartfelt invitation to parents across Alberta and Canada to join us in advocating for a childcare system that truly reflects the needs of our children and families. This call to action is born from a shared dream of affordable childcare—a vision embraced by AACE members with enthusiasm and dedication, contrary to the divisive narratives sometimes portrayed.

We are Alberta’s only childcare association that offers prompt action and gets solutions and necessary change in a timely way. We ensure that the well-being of children truly remains at the forefront of our advocacy and of policy implementation.

Join our community of like-minded operators, regardless of NFP or private business model!

Update

Our association was pleased to see Premier Smith step up in response to closures today and we've decided to take a short pause on further action to reassess and get more details on the Government's response. As of February 1st, however, childcare operators will only receive approximately 15% of their revenue, which is the reduced parent pay portion of fees, and will be waiting 40-45 days to receive the rest from Government. We can't stress the financial urgency enough. Many operators will struggle to pay their rent and staff on the 1st of February. While we are relieved to hear the Premier will take decisive action, the struggle is far from over for the childcare industry.
