Our Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten Classrooms
The ECS Room
Welcome to the Pre-K Room. The classroom is taught by an Alberta Certified Teacher and has Educational Assistants for additional supports. Pre-K follows the kindergarten program statement in regards to overall development and education. With a Learning Through Play Philosophy, children with one or more mild/moderate needs in an area of development will gain the skills needed to move forward into kindergarten the next year.
There is a parent paid option for families who would like their child to attend pre-kindergarten without a developmental delay. It would be a monthly fee of $300/month, paid at the beginning of each month. As the program is run by an Education Teacher, they will follow the Alberta Curriculum for kindergarten while building on the strength of the individual child.
The Pre-Kindergarten room is a spacious space room set up with learning centers to enhance the Learning Through Play philosophy.
They have access to a large gymnasium and multiple outdoor play spaces.
