Empowering Families & Children
Through Excellence in Child Care!
We serve families by providing quality early learning and child care and parent/caregiver support programs that:
We believe that every person has the right to education, employment, and a nurturing environment that provides opportunities for optimal development. Our view is that children are competent, curious, inventive, and born to learn. We believe that all children from all backgrounds and cultures, and at every age and stage, deserve our respect. They are strong and powerful contributors to their own learning. Working in partnership with each other, educators, family, and community members, children construct knowledge and learn about their world.

"The Saskatoon ECE Demonstration Centre is an amazingly fun, warm, and exciting place. Our children love coming each day and we can see the joy it brings them. The staff are always friendly, welcoming, and a pleasure to chat with. Everything from accommodating sleep schedules to allergies to general communication, the staff are always on top of things. We know that when we drop our children off in the morning, they are in the best hands." - Anne & David.
"When I first came to Sharon Van Cleave Child Care Centre (SVC), the staff were very welcoming and supportive. The daycare offers additional support and programming to help teen parents become more successfully independent. SVC daycare is more than just a daycare, it’s like my second family." – Teen Parent
"As a foster parent I have had many children of different ages attend Royal West over the years. No matter what room the child has been in, they have been met with physical and emotional warmth and welcome. I trust Royal West to meet my children's often complex needs and they have always been patient and kind with my family and our social workers. I love that the kids play outside so much and that the focus is on self-esteem and social skills. As a single parent I often joke that Royal West is my co-parent... but in all seriousness, I would not have been able to parent without years of their support and flexibility." - Royal West Parent
