Early Learning Open Houses
Want to learn more about our preschool or Kindergarten programs? Our school will be holding an Early Learning Open House on Friday, April 13 so parents and children can get tours of our schools and classrooms, meet our staff, and find out more about our early learning programs. Contact us for more details about what we have planned!
Pre-registration for existing Care to Learn Preschool families will begin April 9th. Parents will be emailed information on how to pre-register closer to that date.
Registration for the 2018-2019 school year will open to the public on April 23. Details on how to register will be posted on our website closer to that date. Please do not submit registration forms from previous years as they will not be accepted.
If you wish to register for preschool for the remainder of this school year, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Care to Learn Preschool is a provincially-licensed organization located in eight schools in Northern Lights Public Schools, including Vera M. Welsh Elementary School.
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.
At Vera M. Welsh Elementary School we offer a three-hour program for students. Parents can choose to have their children attend two classes per week (Tuesday and Thursday mornings) or three classes per week (Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings).
For information about fees, please see our 2017-2018 Fee Schedule.
More information about our program is included in our 2017-2018 Parent Handbook.
Please note our preschool program follows the Northern Lights Public Schools calendar and there are no preschool classes on no school days.
