Who Are We?

High River Daycare is owned by a mother daughter team. MaryAnn Kyllo and Stacey French have owned and operated the business together for 8 years. It is their goal to bring high quality childcare to High River families, while maintaining affordability and ease of access to all parents. Creating a supportive location for parents to feel confident leaving their children when going to school or work each day, our goal is to offer a calm, relaxed and friendly atmosphere for High River families.

MaryAnn is the mother of four children. Stacey and three grown sons, Jason, Josh and Caleb as well as three grandchildren. She has spent many years nurturing the development of her own children as well as caring for other children, both as a supportive family member, friend and also as a foster parent. MaryAnn enjoys gardening and spending time outdoors, she brings her love of soil and nature into the programs offering the town of High River a beautiful display of flowers in front of the daycare each spring. MaryAnn is also extensively involved in her local community, volunteering her time and energy toward many local projects through the High River Rotary Club. 

Stacey is the mother of two children, Declan and Krysta. Her career in childcare began when she started a dayhome in High River after the birth of her son is 2002 and expanded into daycare and school age care later on. Stacey enjoys photography and often uses her love of capturing images of children to create fun photographs during Easter or Christmas. Stacey works between all three programs and is also the main point of contact through social media, email and the main office. 

Together Stacey and MaryAnn love being a part of their community and strive each day to assist local families and children, while helping make High River a great place to live and raise a family.
