A Diverse Learning Environment
Inspired by Reggio Emilia and Embeded with Flight: Alberta's Early Learning & Childcare Framework
We welcome children ages Newborn to 12 years old to our Erin Ridge Children’s Academy. Daily class activities include free play, music, art, language, science, snack, physical activity, and story time. Our programming will be embedded with Frog Street Curriculum for all ages. At Erin Ridge Academy we use philosophies and methods based on the Reggio Emilia approach to inspire learning through a dynamic, emergent, and interactive curriculum. This approach uses "the 100 languages of the child” to encourage creativity and a love of learning. Give your special young one the opportunity to grow and develop at our Academy.

Your family is unique and has specific needs. We strive to provide programs that meet these needs at our Erin Ridge Children's Academy. Our programs create a rich environment for your child that focuses on holistic development through activities including art, language, pre-math, music, science, motor skills, and free play.
All children receive classwork and homework each day, along with fun and interactive activities which help reinforce the learning process. At Erin Ridge Children’s Academy, we focus on each child and help them develop at their own pace. We offer Pre-School Program in English for children aged 2.5 - 6 years.
Before & After School Program
We understand that regular school hours do not fit well with every family’s schedule. That’s why we offer Before and After School Care to provide a safe place for children outside of regular school hours. Why limit fun and learning to school hours? At Erin Ridge Children’s Academy, we think any time is a good time for learning and fun, and are excited to offer additional hours each day to help your child develop.
Children are given the opportunity to enjoy outdoor play as well as indoor activities depending on the weather. Children are able to choose from a variety of non-directed fun activities during after care but there are also bi-weekly activities guided by teachers such as: art with plasticine and clay, painting with different techniques, science projects, construction with lego, construction with recycled materials, and garden projects.
Music AND Movement For All
At Erin Ridge Children’s Academy, our music education for infants, toddlers and preschoolers and Kindergarten explores beat through movement while using simple instruments. These instruments allow children to be engaged in the music making process confidently. Trying to learn complicated instruments at too young an age can make a child averse to music, so allowing them to get started with simple ones is a great confidence boost. As part of our music curriculum, children will learn to differentiate between their speaking and singing voice, high and low tones, different sound variations and more. Suitable for all levels of development, the music in our Academy benefits children with differing abilities supporting their development in all areas. Every child emerges from their activities with distinct feelings of joy and accomplishment.
