More than 9,400 new child-care spaces were created in Alberta over the last 12 months, bringing the province more than half way to its three-year goal of 14,000 new spaces, the government said Tuesday.

More than 1,100 new staff opted to work in Alberta’s licensed or approved child-care programs in that same year, Alberta Children and Youth Services officials reported.

“The child care profession is in a really good place right now,” says Traudi Kelm, president of the Day Care Society of Alberta, in the news release.

“Staff are feeling a lot more secure and compensated in their jobs and operators are finding it much easier to hire and keep trained staff, leaving more time to concentrate on delivering high-quality child-care programming.”
