Pre-Kindergarten builds children's strengths and skills in a playful, language-rich environment. This program supports children who have developmental delays, have a first language other than English, or identify as First Nations, Métis, or Inuit.
To be eligible for Pre-Kindergarten, children must have a first language other than English, have mild, moderate or severe developmental delays, or identify as First Nations, Métis, or Inuit.
Pre-Kindergarten may be available to children for one, two or three years of programming, depending on children’s needs. For more information, contact a school offering Pre-Kindergarten.
In the spring, parents and families interested in Pre-Kindergarten for the following year need to sign up for either a screening or information session. Parents only need to sign up for one session.
If you are interested in seeing if your child is eligible for the 2018-19 school year, please contact one of the schools offering Pre-Kindergarten and ask if they have room on their waiting list should spots become available.
All Edmonton Public Schools programming is based on curriculum determined by Alberta Education. Children enrolled in Pre-Kindergarten will receive the same high-quality education offered in all of our programs.
