The Kidco Community Centre at St. Albert Grandin Plaza is located along Sir Winston Churchill Avenue in St. Albert. We offer full and part time programs and can take up to 107 children in our nine bright and beautiful classrooms.
Grandin Plaza is a licensed and accredited centre with high quality child care that embraces the individuality and diversity of each child and family in a safe and nurturing environment. Our learning through play approach is filled with creative activities to help minds, bodies, emotions and social skills develop. Our caregivers are trained to program and facilitate activities based on the children’s interests and events happening in the world that surrounds them. They are experts in their field, trained in early childhood education as well as safety standards, first-aid and CPR.
You’ll feel welcomed at our centre from the moment you step in. There is a comfort in the convenience of having a child care program right in the school. Our director and staff are a close-knit group with a passion for teaching and having fun with our kids and families. The summer months are filled with a wide variety of experiences and field trips for our afterschool children. With access to the school gym, children have the opportunity to experience physical activities in a fun and safe environment.
We offer lunch and snacks from our Kidco Kitchen Menu that are nutritious and well balanced. Our menu is developed to address the nutritional needs of growing children and to comply with the most recent version of Canada’s Food Guide. All snacks and meals are served at appropriate times in age-appropriate serving sizes.
We pride ourselves on flexible, reliable child care that kids love and parents trust. Our rates are competitive and qualifying families can receive subsidy at our centre. Contact the Centre Director or click here for more information from Alberta Child and Youth Services.

Meet The Director
My name is Alisa and I am the director of the Grandin Plaza Kidco Community Location. I started working in childcare in 1998 and since then, I have over 15 years of experience working with children. I have tried other career paths but I always missed the child care environment; any job I tried, I found I focused on the children around me and I knew that I was meant to work with them. Something that might surprise people about me is that I am a mom of six children! In my free time, I love doing anything creative. Some of my favourite hobbies are sketching, writing, needle felting and other variations of crafts.
I love the close family feel we have at our centre; our staff work well together and look out for one another. No one is afraid to laugh and get a little goofy with the children and that is so wonderful to be a part of! Having children growing and learning with smiles on their faces is the best part of what we do! Our staff are resilient and very dedicated; they have proven their love for this centre and the families we serve time and time again. We all aim to make a difference in the lives of our families as well as the community around us.
Now that you know a bit more about me, I would love to meet you! I hope you come visit and see for yourself how Kidco Community can provide the right care and education for your child.
