Thank you for taking the time to complete the survey about all day Kindergarten options.
First Steps Academy feels this would be a beneficial option for parents with children entering Kindergarten this fall but we need to know how you feel about it, too.
Your feedback is important to us! It will allow us to determine what options parents need and want as well as how to better provide those options for our families.
What all day Kindergarten will mean for you and your child:
Access to full care from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM
Access to a complete educational program based on the kindergarten program of studies recommended and implemented by the Alberta Government
Daily opportunities to participate in child led activities and crafts based on interests and developmental needs in keeping with our Emergent Planning curriculum
Programs will continue to include opportunities to explore music, languages, social/emotional learning and lots of outdoor play with physical literacy
Verbal and written feedback with assessments throughout the year on positive progress as well as areas requiring more attention and support
Educational field trips and guest speakers (once restrictions have been lifted)
Parents choosing our full day Kindergarten programming will be asked to commit to the full school year (September through June) to minimize any programming disruptions. We understand situations change so please know this does not mean you are locked into care outside of our standard cancelation policy.
