News – Re-entry to Early Learning Classrooms

We want every child to succeed in school!
Some children need extra help learning the skills they will use in Kindergarten… and over a lifetime of learning. Our Early Learning Programs are for children aged 2.8 years to 4.8 years who have complex needs. In small, play-based settings these children receive instruction in specific skills.

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. Contact our Early Learning Principal Kelly Ferguson at Kelly.Ferguson@pembinahills.ca or 780-674-8565.
