A new licensed non-profit community daycare will care for children from 12 months to 5 years old. A dedicated and professional Early Childhood Educators staff team create fun and age-appropriate learning activities for your child. Celebrating and respecting diversity is an important focus of the daycare, including learning about local Indigenous cultures

Your child’s day will be filled with structured learning through play times as well as free time to explore arts, science, literacy, and music centres. Your child will also spend time outside each day. Older children (ages 3 plus) will have community walks and field trip opportunities.Delicious snacks and meals are provided by Ethnicity Catering and are included in your monthly fee. We will assist you if needed to apply for any childcare subsidies you might be eligible for.

Community Based Care for Newcomer Children (CBCNC)


This program helps eligible low-income parents from all Calgary LINC schools to use free childcare in licensed daycare centres or day homes. Children must be 1- 5 years of age. Parents can choose a daycare at a location that is convenient for them. CBCNC can also help them to find a daycare or day home near their homes or schools. Parents can send their children to their chosen daycare or day home for a full day at no cost to the parent.

Who Can Apply For CBCNC

You can apply for CBCNC if:

  •  You or your spouse have registered for a daytime LINC class with a minimum of 12 hours/week in Calgary

  •  Your family is low-income and eligible for the full Alberta Child Care Subsidy (we will help you to apply)

  • Your child is between 1-5 years of age and not yet in school

  • You or your spouse, or your child are convention refugees, permanent residents, or Canadian citizens



Ukrainian parents can now apply for CBCNC if:

  • You or your spouse have registered for a daytime LINC class with a minimum of 12 hours/week in Calgary

  • Your family is low-income and eligible for the full Alberta Child Care Subsidy (we will help you to apply)

  •  Your child is between 1-5 years of age

  •  You are a Ukraine National

  •  You are a Ukrainian family fleeing Ukraine

  • You have a specially issued Alberta Health Care Card with an expiry date

When You Should Apply for CBCNC

As soon as you are admitted to LINC classes, we start helping you to find a suitable licensed daycare or day home. We will help you to apply for the Alberta Child Care Subsidy. Your child will attend the selected daycare or day home on the first day of your LINC class or after the first day of your class if you’ve started the class before getting CBCNC service. Your child can remain in the daycare or day home for as long as you study English in LINC. While you use the daycare or day home through CBCNC, the Alberta Child Care Subsidy covers a part of your childcare fee.  The Government of Canada pays for the rest of the childcare fee through CBCNC as long as you study in your LINC class.

CFN Daycare Evacuation Plan

CFN Daycare staff regularly practice evacuation from the daycare with children.

In the event of an emergency which requires evacuation of the daycare, CFN Daycare staff will follow the practiced procedures to leave the building.

CFN Daycare Staff and children will assemble at their designated “Muster Point” location. This is located at the back of the daycare, near the corner of 5 Ave and 33rd St NE.

Depending on the situation and instructions provided by any emergency personnel, children and staff will either return to the daycare or parents will be contacted to pick up their children at the Muster Point.
