New for 2021

Beginning in September, all Pre-Kindergarten programs across the division will run Monday to Thursday for 3 hours. Class times may vary between morning or afternoon, depending on your community. Fridays will be used for home visits, one on one assessments, family activities, and for professional collaboration with supporting staff.

* Washroom support is provided, so students do not need to be potty trained to attend Pre-Kindergarten.

Early Learning Intensive Supports (ELIS)

The Saskatchewan Ministry of Education’s Early Learning Intensive Support Program is for three and four-year old children with significant developmental delays requiring intensive support to meet their potential. A medical diagnosis is not required to qualify but there are a limited number of spaces available so not all children will be accepted to receive this support.  Factors such as the age of the child and other available services may impact selection. And, although children who are three or four years of age can attend the program, priority will be given to four year olds with preference to children who are not enrolled in another early learning program where intensive supports are being provided.

Support will be provided through a collaborative team approach to meet individualized needs and to promote strengths from learning and participation. The unique needs and circumstances of the child, the class and facility will be considered for each situation.

To learn more about this program please see the family brochure.
