We Wanted Our Son In A Great Calgary Daycare
But we struggled to find something amazing so … We built our own using over a decade of child care experience. We wanted a safe, nurturing environment that was more than just a typical day care. We wanted our son to truly learn, socialize, AND have fun. We are more a school than a day care… much more!
How to Find the
for Your Children
We created our own list of what was important to us and ensured that all of those qualities were present when we developed 2000 Days Pre-Kindergarten.
You, as a parent, need peace of mind that your children will be safe and secure while in the care of someone else. Our building is secured with an automated FOB (frequency operated button) entry door, and our employees are all trained in safety and security measures in the event of a threatening situation.
Your child likely has a lot of energy to burn each day, and this is natural. We make sure that our environment is stimulating and engaging through our daily curriculum which is an amazing balance of academics and play. So your child can do what they are great at – being a kid!
We work hard to ensure your child is in a kind and loving environment, at every moment that they are in our care. We treat your child with respect and talk to them at their level. No time outs here. We teach empathy and sympathy to our students.
We ensure that our teacher to student ratio is maximized to ensure the best learning environment for the children in our care. Low ratios mean that more teachers are looking after fewer students. There is a mandated ratio for how many children one person or center can look after, which is set and enforced by the government. The vast majority of daycares and other early learning schools follow this ratio, which varies by age group. We do more!
We ensure that our center operates lawfully and abide by all local ordinances. Further, we make sure that our teachers are learning and growing too by engaging them in weekly training on applicable teaching methods and philosophies. This ensures we are keeping up with the times and always offering the latest and greatest methods and practices at our school.
Perhaps the greatest gift that a parent can provide to a pre-school is the positive word of mouth. References can go a long way, and parents love to hear from other parents. Let us know if you would like to chat with a family directly. We’ll be happy to make an introduction.
Our staff will take the time to update you on your child’s day so that you can celebrate their accomplishments each evening. We believe that consistent and clear communication between our teachers and management team, parents and guardians is essential. We provide regular communications through a daily report that tells you everything your child did for the day. Instead of online web cameras that you watch, we use a daily report that is secure. We think you’ll love it as much as we do because our families love this tool. It’s a treat to get your child’s entire day on your computer, phone or email.
Our school has an incredible chef on site. They make nutritious, family style meals daily. With a hot breakfast, hot lunch and delicious snack your child will have energy to take on our fun and academic environment. Do you like lasagna, teriyaki broccoli or chicken veggie alfredo? Your child will love it and you might stay for lunch. You are always welcome!
Let’s face it, children carry a lot of germs. It is critical that your child can spend time in a clean and sterile environment to stay healthy. When your child is healthy, parents can stay healthy too, which means less missed time at work. Our sick policies are some of the best in the industry and we strongly believe this helps lower how often our children and even staff get sick.
The First 2000 Days
On average, there are only 2000 days from when your child is born until they enter Kindergarten. And there are so many amazing and critical milestones that your child will encounter along the way.
During those critical early days, it is also important that your child develops soft skills, which are equally important as cognitive skills so that your child can be successful in school.
Gameplay & Creative Thinking
At our center, we incorporate play that teaches negotiation skills while ensuring the child is having fun along the way. We support parents in teaching rules, developing ethical reasoning, and developing critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
By developing these skills early on, in those first 2000 days, your child will be better equipped to:
- Communicate Effectively
- Get along with other children
- Control their emotions
- Develop self-motivation
- Think creatively to solve problems
What Parents Say
I would definitely recommend this children’s daycare.
“We have had two boys attend 2000 Days Pre-Kindergarten and our experience has been very good. The boys enjoy attending and curriculum has been good (art, numbers, letters, yoga, outdoor activities, etc.). It is very well organized and the teacher-student ratios are better than some other centers. The teachers are very caring and enjoy the students. The Kepka’s truly care about running a high quality childcare center. If you are in the search for a daycare be sure to check out 2000 Days Pre-Kindergarten.”
My daughter has been developing ahead of the curve
My almost 3 year old daughter has been attending this Calgary daycare since the opening, and we cannot say enough how much we appreciated the loving care we have received. My daughter has been developing ahead of the curve and we, as parents, are very proud of her. She has been learning language, arts and crafts at the school. The teacher she had all have been amazingly loving, attentive! I would highly recommend this daycare Calgary!
I knew it was a place we would also call home.
The first 5 years of a child’s life are the most important. Building a solid foundation in all aspects of their lives is the best thing you can do to ensure successful, happy adults; and 2000 Days Pre-Kindergarten agrees! From the moment I walked in and met the amazingly friendly, understanding, and passionate owners who welcomed us into their “home-away-from-home”, I knew it was a place we would also call home. Every day, they continue to amaze me with their hard work and dedication in providing my daughter, as well as every other child who walks through their doors, with the most ideal environment any parent would want their child growing and learning in. The combination of amazing staff and a well thought out curriculum set this place far above any other preschool Calgary facility you will ever find!
Would highly recommend Preschool Calgary to any parent, and do!
We were looking for a school like this and finally found it. We did not want typical daycare. We wanted something better. We found it here. 2000 Days has been nothing but amazing for our daughter. She loves it there. She has a hard time leaving, which for us is a good sign. She is always telling us what she is learning. Would highly recommend Preschool Calgary to any parent, and do!
An absolutely great feeling for any parent.
Our little dude has thrived at 2000 Days and actually can’t wait to get there in the morning. “Papa, Papa. School” all while pointing outside trying to hurry me along. When we arrive he runs over and hugs his teacher who always welcomes him like he was her own. .
I would strongly recommend this daycare Calgary
It is, above anything else, the quality of the staff working at 2000 Days Pre-Kindergarten that differentiates it from other daycares that I knew in Ontario and visited here in Calgary before meeting Marlene. They work with children because they love children. In addition, the facility is always pleasantly clean and tidy. This daycare also has a kitchen with a chef who prepares fresh, healthy meals for the kids following a posted menu which has always impressed me for the well balanced diet and the great variety of dishes served. I would strongly recommend this daycare Calgary… if you are looking for a place, come for a visit, you won’t regret it!
What an amazing thing you guys are doing!
Hartley, Pamela and I feel so blessed to have such wonderful people taking care of our little guy! If we can ever return the favor please let us know.

We have so enjoyed every moment
We have so enjoyed every moment we have spent with your school over the past two years. I have watched my little girl develop with leaps and bounds under the direction of her teachers. She is always excited to go to school and I have always felt nothing but pride, happiness, and appreciation when I think about what a wonderful job you all have done caring for her when I could not.
We are so grateful for the kind & loving care she received
This morning as I listened to Adelaide count to 11 (She always starts at 4!! :)) I truly appreciated the tremendous impact you have had on her development. We are so grateful for the kind & loving care she received with you and thank you so much for all you have done for Addy. We will miss you and hope to be back with her little brother in tow.
Peter, Stephe and Adelaide
We have a certified cleaning staff that cleans the school nightly to make sure your little ones are playing in a clean environment.
Our state of the art facility is located a minute from Chinook Mall, 5 minutes from downtown and a 10 minute walk from Chinook Station LRT.
We look forward to meeting you and your child, and we are confident that you will
find the 2000 Days experience to be the one you have been searching for.
