Junior Kindergarten Cost


The Government of Alberta, in conjunction with the Government of Canada, have recently announced new funding that seeks to reduce childcare costs in Alberta, starting in 2022. The new funding initiative include two programs; operating grants and family subsidies.

Operating Grants

Operating grants will be provided to childcare centres, so that the centre can directly decrease fees. As GCA’s Junior Kindergarten program is operated under a daycare license, a few of GCA’s Junior Kindergarten programs are eligible for this funding, based on the number of monthly hours attended in those programs. The programs that are eligible include:

  • Monday / Wednesday / Friday Full Day Program
  • Tuesday / Thursday Full Day Program
  • Monday through Friday Full Day Program

With these operating grants in place, GCA will be able to offer these prices:

*Subsidized Price is dependent upon the continuation of the Government’s Affordability Grant at its current rates, and dependent on hours attended. For the subsidized prices to take affect, the student must attend the program for at least the hours noted above every single month. If the number of hours are not attended, then the grant will be unavailable to GCA, and the price for that month will revert to the 22/23 Full Price. The difference in pricing will be automatically processed via PAP the following month.

Any questions regarding the subsidized pricing can be directed to Lyden Price (l.price@gcaschool.com) or Sheri Thwaites (s.thwaites@gcaschool.com).

Family Subsidies

The Alberta Government has also expanded eligibility for their childcare subsidy. This subsidy is calculated on a family by family basis, and is now available to families who make less than $180,000. These families can apply for the subsidy through the Government of Alberta’s website. GCA’s program is noted as ‘ABC Program’ in the application process.

If pursuing the Government of Alberta subsidy, any questions regarding the application process should be addressed directly to the Government Alberta support centre (1-877-644-9992). If a family is approved for a subsidy, that family should provide their letter of approval to Sheri Thwaites (s.thwaites@gcaschool.com) as soon as it is received, so that monthly fees can be adjusted in a timely manner.
