Care to Learn Preschool is a provincially-licensed organization located in eight schools in Northern Lights Public Schools.
We are a developmental preschool, providing learning, growth and play opportunities for pre-Kindergarten aged children through music, arts and crafts, games, physical activity, early math and literacy centres, and more.
Our preschool program is designed to support families in their efforts to provide their preschool-aged child with the following essential skills: independence; decision-making; imagination and creativity; sense of community; communication; learning through exploration; problem-solving; feelings of value and self-worth; and relating to others.
A government childcare subsidy is available. Parents are not required to fundraise for the program.
We offer many options for parents to choose from.
Our Three-Hour Program is available in the mornings and afternoons and there are options to attend either two or three classes per week. Not all options are available at every location due to enrollment numbers and staff availability.
The Three-Hour Program is available at Ardmore School, Cold Lake Elementary School, Duclos School, Glendon School, Iron River School, North Star Elementary School, Vera M. Welsh Elementary School and Wandering River School.
We also offer a Full-Day option at Duclos School in Bonnyville where children can attend preschool five days a week.
More information on program availability and fees for the 2017-2018 school year is available in the Fee Schedules section.
More information about our program is included in our 2017-2018 Parent Handbook which will be posted here soon.
