NLSD offers full-day five days a week Kindergarten.
All Northern Lights elementary schools will be hosting a Kindergarten Open House on Friday, April 28 to give parents and students a chance to check out our Kindergarten classrooms meet our friendly staff and learn more about our Enhanced Kindergarten Experience.
Some schools are also hosting an open house or parent information session on Thursday, April 27th. Dates and times for events at each location are listed at the end of this news release.
The Open House events will also provide parents with an opportunity to register their children in our award-winning Kindergarten program. Children who turned four as of March 1 (born between March 2, 2012 and March 1, 2013) may register in Kindergarten for the 2017-2018 school year. Parents will need to bring their child’s proof of age and legal name (birth certificate or passport) and proof of address with them to complete the registration process.
All of our elementary schools offer a full-day Kindergarten program that runs five days a week. The full-day program allows us to enhance the provincial curriculum in all areas so students get additional instruction in literacy and numeracy (an area of focus for our school division) as well as more time learning through play, which is a critical component of early learning.
More information about our Enhanced Kindergarten Experience, and our online registration form, is available on the Northern Lights Public Schools website – www.nlsd.ab.ca.
