Early Years

Early Years provides play-based programming for children 2 years and 8 months to 5 years old. Our Early Years programs include Kindergarten, Full-Day Kindergarten and Pre-Kindergarten.

Kindergarten is offered as a half-day at most elementary schools and full-day at some elementary schools for children living in the designated attendance area.

Some of our youngest learners need more support to work on their speech, mobility and everyday tasks before Kindergarten. Pre-Kindergarten (formerly known as Early Education and Early Learning) is available at select elementary schools. Specialized Services may be available for some families.
