Who We Are
Welcome to Leduc-Strathcona Services for Children. We are a licensed family day home agency committed to providing quality childcare to families in the Sherwood Park, New Serpta, Cooking Lake, Leduc, Edmonton, Warburg, Beaumont, Thorsby, Calmar, Parkland County, Spruce Grove and Devon areas. We have been in operation since 1983. Our goal is to provide Parents an alternative to childcare that is safe, affordable and flexible. Educators offer care in a day home setting which is sensitive to the social, physical, intellectual and emotional needs of each child, in a “home away from home” environment. Services For Children is committed to the Educators and families through continual encouragement and support.
Role Of The Agency
Leduc Strathcona Services for Children is contracted with the provincial government to recruit and supervise family day homes. This involves approving new homes, supervising homes in operation and connecting children in need of care to appropriate homes. Agency staff ensure that agency provincial standards are being maintained and that current research and emerging best practices meet the health and safety needs of the children. Our agency also administers the contracts between Parents and Educators, collects the fees from parents and pays the educator. We provide regular training and support sessions for our Educators as well as one on one in-home consulting during regular visits.
