About Our Program

Our Kindergarten programs build on what your child has already learned at home and in your community. Our programs allow children to explore and experiment with their surroundings and to learn how to interact with other children. Our Kindergarten programs offer many benefits including:

  • Further developed skills in language arts, math, social studies, science, and the arts.
  • Improved personal and social skills.
  • Enhanced physical skills.

For a Comprehensive Guide for Parents/Guardians on our Early Childhood Services Programs, please see the e-booklet below.


When Is My Child Eligible To Attend Kindergarten?

Children may begin Kindergarten in a school within the Division in September if they are five (5) years of age by the end of the following February*. An exception is allowed in cases where special learning needs have been identified and an earlier entrance into Kindergarten is desirable.

*Subject to change for the 2020 – 2021 school year based on amendments to the School Act.


Children with Special Needs

For more information about programming for children with special needs, please contact Niki Gill, ECS coordinator, 780-955-4534, niki.gill@blackgold.ca.
