New Dimensions is an agency which is contracted with Region 4, Central Alberta Child & Family Services to administer a Family Day Home Service. Providers contract with our agency to offer a Family Day Home that provides a child care arrangement most like home while their parents work or attend school. Children are cared for in a safe, healthy and stimulating family environment. Opportunities are offered for small-group play, as well as lots of individual attention. At any one time, Family Day Home Providers may care for a maximum of six children 0-12 years old, including their own children. These restrictions allow the Provider to meet the needs of each child.
We offer child care services to all families of children with special needs, infant, toddler and pre-school ages, as well school age children (up to 12 years old) if required. We also provide respite care to families who require it.
Our Family Day Homes offer an unlimited variety of creative and imaginative activities including music, arts and crafts, cooking, dramatic play, stories, field trips, and science activities. While each of our Providers and their day home services are unique, daily routines provide children opportunities for active and quiet times, indoor and outdoor play, group and individual activities, music, stories, rest, toileting and nourishment. Providers are expected to provide activities and opportunities that stimulate growth in all developmental areas (social, physical, intellectual, creative and emotional).
To place a child care application with our agency please contact us directly or submit the completed application below. Please note that New Dimensions makes its best efforts to offer families two or three Providers to interview with so they are able to make a child care choice that suits their needs.
