Drop-in Childcare - CURRENTLY CLOSED

Drop-In Childcare - Trico Centre for Family Wellness


General statement

It is Trico Centre’s primary concern to provide a healthy and safe experience for all staff, members, and visitors to the facility. To do this, we have been moving forward with a reopening in full compliance with all Alberta Health Standards (AHS) protocols, and, exceeding them where possible, to the best of our ability.

According to AHS regulations we are able to reopen all facility areas; however, we do not feel that we would be able to maintain safety and health protocols within Kids Korner childcare. Our spaces are small, our staffing limited, and the nature of caring for small children while maintaining distancing and cleaning protocols is too difficult to manage in our facility. There is too great a risk to our Kids Korner staff, the children involved, their families, and by extension, our other staff and visitors to reopen at this time.


With over 35 years of experience, Trico Centre's Kids Korner has a great reputation upheld by a strong team of nurturing, qualified staff who are led by Miss Carol. Kids Korner is not "babysitting". We are proud to have a low staff-to-child ratio so that your child can experience playtime with us! Children ages 2.5 and up will enjoy our Big Kid Room on weekday mornings, where we have crafts, story time, games, activities, and free play. 

Kids Korner isn't just for members! Anyone can drop of their children while participating in other activities in Trico Centre.

Come see us for more information or a tour; we look forward to meeting you and your kid(s) very soon!
