Horizon Early Learning Programs
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.
