Starting this fall, Beaverlodge Playschool Society will be offering a program for four year olds.
That’s thanks to an enhanced partnership with Beaverlodge Elementary School to provide more support and resources.
Principal Pauil Cincurak says the main goal is to best prepare the students for grade school.
“I think what it’s going to do is help ensure that when those children come to kindergarten, and a lot of them will be coming to our school, that they’re as ready as they can be; that these kids will get the readiness skills that they need.”
Previously, the program was only open to three and four year olds needing early entry support.
The school will provide extra teaching and support services, and advertise the program in the community ahead of its September 2014 start.
Parents looking to learn more can attend the Playschool Society’s AGM Tuesday night at 7 p.m.
