Our Early Education Program is child centred, playbased and developmentally appropriate, providing a rich early learning environment for your child to have fun and to grow in. The program focuses on language enrichment and speech development in all its activities. Early education opportunities provide for the physical, social, intellectual, creative, and emotional development of all three and four year old children.
Alberta Education does not provide funding for Early Education programs, other than for children who have identified needs. Children who experience difficulties in speech, language, hearing, vision, behavior, and/or motor skills, that meet the Alberta Education requirements, may access early intervention programming within our early education classrooms as follows:
- Children Identified with mild/moderate delays must be at least 4 years old by December 31, 2020.
- Children Identified with severe delays must be 3 years old as of December 31, 2020. A current assessment indicating the child's identified area of need is necessary for program placement. Should a child meet the Alberta Education requirements, as well as the age requirements, they may access programming without monthly fees. Please contact Children's Allied Health at 403-388-6575 to book an appointment.
- Children whose primary language is not English must be 4 years old by December 31, 2020 in order to access ESL (English Second Language) supports.
