Accreditation is a voluntary process available to licensed day care centres, licensed out-of-school care programs, and approved family day home agencies in Alberta.  Once a child care program has an operating license (for day care and out-of-school care programs) or an approved contract (for family day home agencies) with Alberta Children's Services, a license /contract holder can apply to Accreditation of Early Learning and Care Services to enroll the program in the accredit​ation process.
