Do you have preschool children at home? We offer Early Learning preschool programs at some of our community schools. These specialized programs are focused on 3 and 4 year olds, many who need extra help with speech, language, behaviour, etc.

Our program is designed and developed by a team which includes a teacher, program assistants, a speech language pathologist, a behavior specialist and an occupational therapist. Our goal is to meet each student’s individual needs. Children without identified needs are welcome if space is available.

How to register

We’re taking applications for the 2021-2022 school year.  Although we have limited spots, we encourage all parents with preschool children to reach out to us to see if Early Learning might be a good fit for your child.

Submit an application online  

Once your submission has been reviewed, we will follow up with a phone call to determine eligibility for the program. If you have any questions, please contact Anjeanette Klein at 780-674-8545.
