Learners are innovative thinkers who are successful, confident, respectful and caring

Nikki's Den

Nicholas Sheran School proudly houses Nikki's Den, designed to support students with diverse abilities within an inclusive environment.  This District Program provides opportunities for students with multiple physical, sensory, medical, cognitive and behavioural challenges to receive individualized programming in a specialized learning environment.

Every student is unique, with differing strengths and challenges.  In the Lethbridge School District we focus on helping every child learn.  We emphasize inclusive learning and we work to ensure that students are physically included and emotionally connected to all aspects of the school experience.

Skill Development is a program that supports elementary students who have significant delays in most or all developmental areas.  The program is staffed by a teacher and a number of educational assistants, based on student enrollment.  Programming facilitates the development of essential skills in a variety of settings such as individual, small group, classroom, school-wide and community.


  • Build functional skills and communication skills that enhance quality of life.
  • Improve social interaction and behavior while developing academic skills.
  • Develop basic numeracy and literacy, self-help skills and community awareness.

“Be aware of wonder.  
Live a balanced life—learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some.”
