​​Child care programs that are participating in the accreditation process are eligible to apply for accreditation funding under the Child Care Accreditation Funding Program with Alberta Children's Services.

The funding is administered by the Early Childhood Development Branch in Alberta Children's Services.  

For more details, funding rates, conditions, as well as, information on how to apply for accreditation funding, visit the Alberta Children's Services' website.


Accreditation of Early Learning and Care Services has reporting obligations to Alberta Children's Services regarding the progress of all programs that are enrolled in the accreditation process. 

The Accreditation Funding Program receives information reported by Accreditation of Early Learning and Care Services to determine each participating program's eligibility for accreditation funding.  

Accreditation of Early Learning and Care Services does not provide the accreditation funding; therefore, all inquiries regarding the funding should be directed to Alberta Children's Services.
