Child Minding


Hours of Operation

Currently closed as we review and refresh this service. Please check back in Fall 2022 for more information.  Click here to see what registered programs are currently available. 

The Child Minding Centre provides babysitting services so parents can use the LRC’s many recreation facilities and programs knowing that their children (ages 2 months to 7 years) are nearby and receiving quality care.

Our child minding staff have RCMP Vulnerable Sector Check, Child Intervention Check, first aid certification and have taken training workshops designed for working with children. We adhere to the adult-to-child ratios recommended by the Alberta Government (under 19 months = 1:4, 20 months - 7 years = 1:8).

Parents must remain within the LRC while accessing the child minding services.
