Chapter1 Daycare

CIWA works with over 150 business partners each and every year, and these partners make a significant impact in our community – by volunteering their time, their knowledge and insights, their space, or offering employment to newcomers in Calgary.

This month, we would like to highlight Chapter1 Daycare and its commitment to providing safe and innovative childcare services. Chapter1 Daycare provides high-end and high-quality childcare services. Their educational programs consist of traditional and contemporary educational strategies and tools to fulfill the developmental, social, and cognitive needs of a child. They offer childcare services that cater to the whole family to enrich a child’s foundational years for a greater future.

Chapter 1 Daycare has been working with CIWA since 2019, offering employment to graduates of our Childcare Training Pathway, which equips immigrant and refugee women with the skills needed to enter the workforce as licensed childcare providers. To date, Chapter1 Daycare has hired 5 of our clients and continues to offer employment opportunities to CIWA graduates.

Thank you, Chapter1 Daycare, for supporting the economic security of immigrant and refugee women in Calgary, and for making our community stronger!
