We provide programs and services that support children and families in Alberta
As a provincial organization, ARCQE is unique in designing support and resources specific to the needs of the Alberta child care community.
ARCQE was established in November 2004 and is the agency of choice and hub of leadership excellence. Our excited and motivated staff lead and inspire educated and committed professionals to deliver exemplary practices through accessible and flexible programs that support community, children and families. We accomplished this through community building, mentorship and coaching, professional development and training, research and a variety of resources.
