We have four locations that provide care to children ages 6 weeks to 12 years old. Check out each of our locations to find out which centre will work best for you and your family!
Director: Ms. Ashley
Hello, my name is Ashley. I am one of the Directors at Kids’ Stop Children’s Centre in Drake Landing, Okotoks. My education is from the University of Alberta and Grant MacEwan University with a focus on Early Childhood Development/ Elementary Education. I have taught a variety of ages, and I very much enjoy early childhood and working with families in a childcare setting.
My family and I live outside Turner Valley in the folds of the foothills and with our many animals in a wonderful place we have called home for the past 10 years. In my spare time I enjoy hiking, camping, gardening, hobby farming, fishing, snowboarding and spending time with my amazing husband and two children.
In my 15-year career I have worked as a preschool teacher, forest school educator, teacher and now as a director. I feel so grateful to be working with a company that values the child and their family and encourages professional development.
With my variety of experience it has helped shape my own personal philosophy which is a direct reflection of my personality when working with children. Children are inquisitive and capable humans navigating this beautiful world. When I work with children and their families I value them as unique and creative individuals within the centre.
Daycare & Out of School Care
6 weeks to 12 years old.
They have wonderful theme weeks/month, they go on adventure walks and are just very understanding and kind to not only my daughter but me to as well (I did email them a lot to check in).
My daughter is very affectionate to those she likes and these educators get hugs daily.
Fast forward a couple of years and my husband is relocated to Okotoks for work. I joined all the groups I could that were local to find care. All the day homes just did not meet my previous standard. After we found a house in Drake Landing, I noticed a daycare center literally across the road. I emailed to ask for a viewing and was notified right away that they had time for us, whenever we needed it. Our first visit went great, I was shown the benefits of the center and my son was getting excited at the possibility of coming back. Due to our moving timeline, we had to find a place fast. We enrolled for the following week.
Kudos to the team at Drake Landing KIDS’ STOP!
