Child Care & Kindergarten

Red Deer Polytechnic offers convenient year-round child care and Kindergarten on campus. While the priority placement is given to RDP students who are parents, community members and RDP employees may also apply to enrol their children in the childcare program. 

The staff will care for your children while you concentrate on your education at the same time. The Polytechnic’s licensed Child Care Centre (Room 1601) is a welcoming and safe space that provides engaging learning opportunities for children aged 2.5 to 6 years old.
