What is Care for Newcomer Children (CNC)?

Are you a student in one of our LINC programs? Do you have children? We offer FREE childcare if you said yes to both of these questions.

In the CNC program, children participate in age-appropriate activities every day which are designed to help them understand life in Canada. All activities are sensitive to each child’s past experiences and differences in development.

The children in the CNC program come from many different cultures. In the CNC program, we create an environment of respect, creativity, fun, and understanding of differences.


Parent must be a Permanent Resident of Canada or Refugee

Parent must be over 18 years of age.

Parent must be enrolled in TIES’ LINC, and LINC Literacy.

Children must be between 12 months and 11 years of age and have up-to-date vaccination documentation including immunization records and Alberta Health Card.


Hours match TIES’ programs

Childminding is not a daycare service. Parents are required to remain in the building with their children at all times – and vice-versa.
