Kindergarten is a special experience for both children and families, and we are passionate about making it a positive, outstanding experience for everyone. A great Kindergarten program should meet all the developmental needs of young children – social, intellectual, creative, cultural, physical and emotional. It is a time for a child to gain confidence, develop communication skills, discover, explore and experience the fun of learning!

We are one of only a few independently operated ECS programs in Alberta. Our program is funded and accredited by Alberta Education. We have been in operation for over 50 years, and proudly offer a unique kindergarten experience. Through play based education, we emphasize early literacy and language learning with an introduction to letters, letter sounds, sight words. Numbers and math concepts, social awareness, science experimentation’ music and art are also part of our daily learning. Our students enjoy a variety of enrichment activities and outings throughout the school year, including:

  • skating and swimming lessons
  • field trips
  • in-class visitors and presentations
  • unique hands-on learning experiences such as bread-making, art projects and duck egg and butterfly hatching.
  • Daily outdoor play and physical activity

Our program operates from a bright sunny classroom. Our teacher and teacher’s aide are experienced and enthusiastic educators, and our small class size means each student gets lots of individual attention and support.

Our Open House is typically held the second week of January each year and Registration for the upcoming year begins during the last day of January. In addition to our government funded kindergarten spaces, we also offer a limited number of tuition-based Junior Kindergarten spaces.
