Indoor Gym -Edmonton location

  • Family-owned with a passion for serving families We are an Alberta, family-owned and operated child care business.

  • Child Centred Curriculum-based learning: Our programming encourages your child to develop a positive attitude towards education. Our curriculum is child-centred and designed to adapt to every child’s unique learning styles and needs. It is crafted to bring out inquisitiveness, creativity and intellectual expression.

  • Comprehensive programs: We have a range of programs that target every age group between 12 months to 12 years. All of our programs, such as our daycares, preschool and out-of-school cares, give children the freedom to explore and challenge their intellectual abilities while giving them a sense of belonging.

  • Smaller class size: Our program is designed to have smaller class sizes, allowing educators to devote more time and attention to each child.

  • Main floor with ample parking: Enjoy the convenience of drop-off and pick-up time. No waiting for elevators or carrying children up and down stairs. Being on the main floor (vs programs on upper levels of buildings) gives us the added benefit of a safe evacuation should an emergency occur.

  • Meals and snacks: Lunch and two snacks are prepared on-site by our Chef. Meals and snacks are never prepared in advance at an offsite location.

  • Safety: The safety and security of our children and staff is a top priority. Only authorized parents and educators can enter the building by using their door fob on our secure entry system. Cameras allow for monitoring by management throughout the day.

  • Indoor Gym - Edmonton Location Cold and rainy weather doesn't keep us from moving and playing. Our large indoor gym is full of activities to keep the children active.

A & D Child Care Centre and Out of School Care


The Learning Tree Preschool

Absolutely Fantastic


“My son has been attending A & D for about two years now and we are very happy with A & D. So much so that we wouldn’t send him anywheres else. He loves both his daycare room and preschool. They offer additional courses like yoga and music class. My son comes home full of

stories and absolutely loves the workers. To say we are happy would be an understatement. Absolutely fantastic care!”

Highly Recommended


“Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Reliability, Responsiveness, Value
Quality of care is next to none. Provides stability and confidence for the kids. Clean and bright, this organized centre is highly recommended to bring your children for care while you have to be at work. I have experienced every room from baby to out of school care. Long standing staff with low turnaround. Their Chef preps delicious snacks and meals. I wouldn’t put my kids elsewhere. You want an amazing place... you will find it with A&D!”

The Meadows Early Learning and Child Care

Extremely Pleased


“I am extremely pleased with The Meadows Early Learning and Child Care. My son has become a lot more social and talkative since starting there. His palate has also improved immensely. The facility is spacious and clean and the staff are simply the best. Dropping my son off in the mornings is no longer something to dread since he usually suggests going to daycare after breakfast and is happy to see his friends and the employees. I can not recommend this place highly enough.”

A Positive Impact


“My daughter has gone here ever since she was 1 years old and I can honestly say she has not cried a day I have left her here. The staff at this daycare are wonderful and treat the kids like their own. My daughter is now 3 and asks on the weekends to go to daycare so that alone speaks volumes. I love it here and recommend it to anyone who is thinking about putting their child in a daycare. Thanks A&D for putting the kids first and truly making a positive impact in their lives, I’m very grateful!”

The Meadows Early Learning and Child Care

Caring, Patient and Fun


“Transitioning from maternity leave to work is a scary ordeal. My husband and I researched and visited several day cares and day homes before visiting the Meadows open house. We had a gut feeling right from the start that this is where my child needs to go. All my worries and fears vanished. The staff is amazing. They are caring, patient and fun. They always greet my child with smiles and open arms. The theme days and art projects they do with all the kids are awesome. I also love the outdoor activities they do everyday. The staff also taught my child sign language! I would recommend the Meadows to any parent out there. I go to work knowing that my child is in great hands and well taken care of. Nothing beats that peace of mind.”

Very Friendly


“My kids love A&D. The staff is very friendly and the day care is very clean. My daughter comes home and tells us stories about her day. I like that you need a fob to get into the day care, and that people just can’t walk in. We have been going to A&D for 3 years.”

The Learning Tree Preschool



“I love A&D because they are family owned and operated and that’s important to me. I feel at ease knowing that the owner is there and involved in the daily business operations. The Directors are genuine and always have their finger on the pulse. They welcome feedback and are always open to suggestions. They will work with you and your child’s preferences to ensure you feel completely comfortable. From the moment I arrived at A&D I felt welcomed and part of their family…”
