What is Pre-Kindergarten?
This is an exciting time for you and your child as you learn and prepare for becoming a student at Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS).
Pre-Kindergarten programming at EIPS supports children between the ages of 3 and 5 (by Sept. 1 annually) in reaching emotional, social, intellectual and physical developmental milestones.
EIPS provides early intervention programming through its Play and Learn at School (PALS) programs. Eligibility for PALS is guided by the criteria outlined by Alberta Education. Typically children registered in PALS have been assessed with mild/moderate or severe disabilities/delays in one or more developmental areas.
For assessment or referral, please see your health care provider, visit your local health centre or contact EIPS.
