A program for children 3 years of age, Pre-Kindergarten aims to advance early literacy, creative expression, physical skills, mathematics, and so much more!
A fun learning environment that works closely with the Alberta Kindergarten curriculum, this program will build on important fundamentals like literacy, mathematics, identity, and personal/social responsibility!
