The Chapter 1 Experience

Shaping Your Child's Future from Chapter 1

Our Mission is to offer an upscale childcare service that enhances the cognitive, social, and physical skills of your child through traditional and contemporary early learning educational programs.


We believe that giving the right start to your child will not only give them a lead ahead in life but also build the necessary foundations needed for rest of their lives.

because every great story begins with Chapter 1.

The Government of Alberta has just announced a mandatory closure of all licensed child care programs in the Province.

Both our downtown and Royal Oak locations will now be closed indefinitely until further instructions from Government. Closure applies also to schools. The daycare emails and phone lines will remain open and we will continue to reply to any specific inquiries. We advise all families to continue some form of restricted socialization and self-isolation as precautionary measures.
