The Kidco Community Centre at St. Charles in west Edmonton is located inside St. Charles Catholic School. We offer full and part time programs for children attending kindergarten to grade 6 with a capacity for 30 children.
St. Charles 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 snacks from our Kidco Super Snack 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
I am Amenie Wray, the Centre Director of Kidco Community St. Charles. I graduated with a high school diploma and I am a Level 1 Child Development Assistant. I have been working with Kids & Company since 2009, and I have been working in child care for 12 years. When I had my first child 18 years ago, that’s when I knew I wanted to be involved in developing children at an early age. In my spare time, I like to spend time with my children, watch movies & go on bike rides. At Kidco Community St. Charles, we all work together so incredibly well, our relationship goes beyond coworkers. We are a family and the team effort is amazing! The relationship we have with the administration and staff in the schools is also wonderful. We are very well supported by our area manager as well. At St. Charles, we are located in the school and have access to the gymnasium & park on site, which is brand new! Our Kinder program offers French, sign language, writing and all sorts of education to excel when graduating to grade 1. Thank you for taking the time to get to know me, I look forward to getting to know you and your family! Please come for a visit so you can see for yourself how Kidco Community can provide the right care and education for your child.
