Children First: Community Child Care Network Society
The Society is a non-profit umbrella organization made up of a Board of Directors. Children First: Community Child Care Network Society's Board of Directors, formed in spring 2008, is made up of a diverse, dedicated group of community members. It grew out of the wider Community Child Care Coalition, and has been working diligently to access all available government funding and to network with community partners to help realize the vision of providing more accessible, affordable high-quality child care services for families in Fort McMurray.
Children First: Community Day Home Agency
The Agency provides child care through a network of approved Community Day Home Providers, who are recruited and supported by our program. Our Providers are selected based on their skills and knowledge in the field, their willingness to engage in ongoing professional development, and their desire to provide high-quality child care in their own homes. We are aiming to create a community of highly trained Child Care Professionals offering quality care to the Fort McMurray community.

Children First Office Space
Children First is participating in a new and exciting venture, a shared office space project. We are in a shared office space, amongst six other agencies and are able to benefit from being within proximity of each other. It also decreases the consumption of resources, and significantly lowers costs. Each agency brings something new and different to the table and we are all here to support one another as well as act as resources for each other, since we are all in the non-profit sector. This is a great opportunity for us, and many others. Please visit the Redpoll website to learn more about this exciting new venture and meet our roommates!
