Importance of Early Learning Centres

Early Learning Centres are one piece of Calgary Public Library’s Early Learning Strategy.

Healthy development in early childhood sets the course for a child’s future, leads to kindergarten readiness, and prepares children for lifelong learning and success.

Read our Early Learning Strategy

Our long-term goal is to have an Early Learning Centre in every Library in Calgary.

Philanthropic support from individuals, organizations, and all levels of government have made our other Early Learning Centres possible.

In 2017, four Early Learning Centres opened at Saddletowne, Forest Lawn, Signal Hill, and Crowfoot libraries, thanks to a $1 million investment from the Calgary Foundation and an anonymous donor.
