Beaumont strives to place siblings together in the same program to support family needs. The intake process can be very complex and multiple spaces may not become available at the same time. The Early Learning Child Care and School Age Site Supervisors may offer you a single space based on availability unless you indicated otherwise on the waitlist form.

Due to the fact that all programs are operating at capacity it is virtually impossible to predict when spaces will become available. When spaces do become available, program supervisors will contact families via telephone if the space meets their outlined requirements. Typical wait times for children for placement within Child Care Services is 18-24 months.
You are encouraged to inquire with child care services for new space timelines and your child(ren)’s position on the waitlist. Contact them at 780-929-1006.
All full-time and part-time spaces are currently at capacity. However, some drop-in spaces may be available, please contact the program supervisor at 780-929-1263 for details.
The waitlist policy states that if a suitable space (based on the information provided on the waitlist form) is offered to a family and the guardian refuses the space, the child’s name is brought to the bottom of the list. If care is refused a second time, the child’s name is removed from the list and the child would once again have to be registered (including paying the $50 registration fee).
It is recommended you maintain your waitlist information as accurately as possible to ensure you are only offered spaces that meet your family’s needs. Updates are required in writing and can be sent via email to ChildCareServices@beaumont.ab.ca
