What Makes Vonkids Different?
The Vonkids Difference
At VonKids, when it comes to childcare, we believe in going the extra mile. That’s particularly true when it comes to our educational curriculum.
By using years of experience in childhood development education and experience, we’ve implemented programs that are fun, age-appropriate, and positive, and provided in a cozy dayhome setting.
Add to that a focus on nurturing strong bonds between friends and family, and it’s no wonder the kids who have gone through our system remember it fondly.
We strive to provide a healthy and enriching environment that fosters learning, play, growth, and socialization to help your child thrive now and later in life.
Our Mission & Core Values
At Vonkids, our mission is to be your partner in your child’s education, growth, and development to help them become better prepared for life ahead.
Our Core Values:
Love & Happiness
A Holistic Learning Environment For Your Child
When it comes to quality child care, most people believe that big-name daycares are the way to go. While most do a good job of keeping your children entertained in a safe and fun way, most generic daycares don’t do much to help your kids learn and grow in a way that will help them throughout their lives. That’s where VonKids comes in to break the mold.
Not only do we offer excellent child care in Calgary and the surrounding areas, but we help kids learn through carefully selected curriculums that are designed to further child development.
