The Kidco Community Centre at Millcreek Daycare in southeast Edmonton is located in Millwoods near the beautiful Millcreek Ravine. We offer full time programs for infants to 12 years of age, with four classrooms and a capacity of 84 children. We offer transportation to and from Greenview Elementary, Jackson Heights Elementary, Julia Kiniski Elementary and St. Kateri Catholic Elementary School.
Millcreek 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. 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.
Our centre allows for unique opportunities for outdoor play and connecting to nature with our beautiful and spacious backyard as well as access to the ravine. Children have many opportunities to discover their outdoor environment through activities such as seasonal nature walks, I-spy games and scavenger hunts. There is much to learn through playing in puddles, observing flowing water, and paying attention to the growth cycles of grass, wild flowers and colourful leaves. In the summer and warmer weather, teachers provide opportunities for the children to roll down the hills of grass and play games in nearby fields.
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 Shelley Borle and I am the Director at the Millcreek Kidco Community location. I have a Level 2 Child Development Worker Certification and have been working in childcare for almost three decades. In my spare time I enjoy camping in the mountains, baking, and trying out new recipes.
I love the support, love and commitment the staff at Millcreek show towards the children that attend our centre. We have a family-oriented atmosphere, great programming, and amazing events like our annual concerts, bake sales, family BBQs and more.
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.
