We work to enhance quality in programs and services that support children and families
As a provincial organization, ARCQE is unique in designing support and resources specific to the needs of the Alberta child care community.
Established in November 2004, 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.
How does eligibility work for coaching services?
All of the above coaching services are available as sponsored support under a partnership with the Ministry of Children’s Services. This means for those programs in the 2019-2020 contract year who meet eligibility criteria, access to above services will be at no cost.
To determine program eligibility for sponsored Ministry support or to enlist an ARCQE Coach, please submit a service request form or contact the Project Manager Nicole Morrell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
*Please note: All sponsored hours must be utilized between April 1st – March 31st annually.
To creatively inspire professionals to build leadership and capacity by enhancing quality in programs and services that support children and families.
To be the agency of choice and hub of leadership excellence, where excited and motivated staff lead and inspire educated and committed professionals.
We are guided by reflective practice, continuous learning and quality improvement, a supportive, strengths-focused approach, responsiveness and flexibility, ethical and transparent practices, collaboration and relationships based on respect, inclusion and equality.
All aspects of ARCQE’s services were beneficial – guidance in providing information on developing policies, setting up workshops, understanding how to fill out forms, etc.
