If your child is 3 years old by September 1, they can be enrolled in Early Learning!

Children with an identified developmental delay, or if they are learning English as a second language, may qualify for funding support and additional program services.

Our Early Learning programs offer a play-based approach with many hands-on experiences for young children. Each day the children have the opportunity to create, observe and explore, listen to stories, move, and sing. These activities are guided by staff who offer a safe and positive first-school experience for children. We also strive to work together with families to best meet the needs of the children.

We offer a wide variety of developmentally appropriate activities with a strong focus on speech and language development. We provide opportunities for children to develop their skills in all areas, including:

Language and Communication Cognitive and Problem Solving
Fine and Gross Motor Skills Social Interaction and Emotional Regulation

These are the skills that provide the foundation for further learning and success in school and in life. 

Our Early Learning Programs are not government funded so there is a fee for children to attend. Children who have been diagnosed with a developmental delay that meets Alberta Education criteria may not be required to pay the fees. 

For more information, please call Andra Johnson, Supervisor of Early Learning, at 403-223-3547 ext. 10132.
