    EHW Child Care Society has an ongoing commitment to provide high quality child care to all children and families by treating all members and staff with fairness and respect.

Proud to be named an Alberta Early Learning and Child Care Centre

Edmonton Hospital Workers Child Care Society is excited to have been named one the 100 new Early Learning and Child Care (ELCC) Centres across Alberta.

Starting May 1, 2018, we will offer:

  • Capped parent fees at $25/day care,
  • Continued and enhanced implementation of the early learning and child care curriculum framework*,
  • Inclusive supports for children with diverse needs,
  • Expanded capacity in our Short-Term Contingency Care program

In addition, starting in late summer of 2018, we are excited to offer extended hours care (evenings and weekends); more information coming soon!


Thank you for your interest in our Early Learning and Child Care Centre program. Please understand that because space is limited, our program is offered on a first-come-first-served basis through our waitlist process. Children of current or returning member families are given first priority on our waitlist, followed by Glenrose Hospital employees, employees at other Alberta Health Services sites, and then the general community. To be included on our waiting list, please click here: (download waitlist form). We will contact you should a space become available.

About Us:
The Edmonton Hospital Workers Child Care Society operates a daycare in the Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital with spaces open to the general public. The EHWCCS daycare is an accredited child care centre with highly trained staff and a focus on learning. Physical activity is also a priority and children have daily access to the gymnasium and regular access to swimming and the outdoor playground. We are excited to have begun weekly music classes. Our licensed and accredited child care program is Reggio Emilia- and RIE-inspired, and welcomes children of all abilities. The monthly fee includes morning and afternoon snack; weekly swimming, music, and small-group art instruction programs; a long-term gardening project; and developmentally appropriate indoor and outdoor programming tailored to each child’s interests and needs, provided by skilled educators in a caring environment, with an average adult-to-child ratio of 1 to 5.
