Special events and parent participation
Throughout the year we offer special theme days, Halloween, Christmas and Easter activities, field trips and special guests, volunteer opportunities, class photos, outside activities, class mascot, special helper program, Scholastic book orders, monthly newsletters and calendars, graduation ceremonies and scrapbooks for the children at the end of the year.
Parents are encouraged to participate and support their children in the program.
We have regular volunteer opportunities throughout the program, both in and out of the classroom. Special events such as Christmas concerts, sharing days and graduation ceremonies are wonderful opportunities for parents to get together with other families and participate in our classroom.
There is no fundraising involved for parents as all of our costs are covered by our registration fees.
Our instructors are all required to have a minimum of the Child Development Worker certification from the Alberta government and every instructor must have a current Standard First Aid and CPR certification. Criminal Record Checks with the Vulnerability section must be current as well for each instructor.
Children must be toilet trained and the appropriate age before starting the program.
Public registration starts in January and is ongoing for the year. If the program you want is full, please ask to be placed on the waitlist. Registration is in person. Please contact the Preschool, Children’s and Youth Programmer at 403.948.8804 ext. 5510 if you have any questions, or if you would like to book a tour.
Government subsidy is available for all of the classes.
