School District 59 offers many early learning programs to help prepare children for starting school.
The Ready, Set, Learn program is intended for families and their three and four year old children. The program provides information about how to support a young child’s early learning and development. It also develops positive connections between families, the school system and local community agencies.
Attend a Ready, Set, Learn event in your community. Families who attend an event at a local school take part in play-based activities while finding out about early learning programs and services.
The Welcome to Kindergarten™ program helps prepare pre-kindergarten children for a positive start to their school journey. Parents/caregivers and their children attend orientation sessions at their neighbourhood school where they receive early learning and literacy resources, and learn how to use them at home. The orientation helps create the foundation for positive relationships between parents, teachers and community agencies that sets the stage for a smooth transition to school and future success.
