Kindergarten

All Northern Lights elementary schools offer a full-day Kindergarten program five days a week.

We enhance the provincially-mandated half-day Kindergarten curriculum with an Extension program based on Flight: Alberta’s Early Learning and Care Curriculum Framework.

The Kindergarten curriculum is taught by a certified teacher and follows Alberta Education’s Program of Studies. The Extension program is provided by our Extension Educational Assistants (EA’s).

At EPS we alternate time between the Kindergarten teacher who works with the students in the morning on curricular outcomes and these lessons are reinforced through the Flight program with our Extension EA during the afternoon.  Depending on the class size, the morning program may be supported by the Extension EA or the class may be split between the Teacher and the EA.  Further details on the current year's programming for Kindergarten will be shared with parents at their individual interview time in September.  We are looking forward to starting your child's learning journey with you!
