General Program Information

Kindergarten with Full-Day Programming (Kindergarten & Extensions) Click here

We are excited to offer full day programming for children in their Kindergarten year.  The Kindergarten program is half day, and has an Extensions program offered for the other half of the day to create a full day of programming. The Kindergarten program is taught by a certified teacher and is based on Alberta Education’s Program of Studies, while the Extensions program is provided by an Early Childhood Educator (ECE) that guides meaningful play experiences and is based on Flight: Alberta’s Early Learning and Care Framework, as an anchor for the program. Parents of children who will be 5 by December 31 of the school year can register for the Kindergarten Extensions Program starting in January. If you have friends or relatives who have children in this age group, please make them aware of our Kindergarten with Full Day programming and our very talented staff who make this program so successful for all children. 

Grades 1-6 New Registrations

In September 2022, Kindergarten to Grade 6 students across Alberta will learn a new provincial curriculum in Physical Education and Wellness (K-6), English Language Arts and Literature (K-3 only), and Mathematics (K-3 only). ECSD has a strong history of fostering deep learning experiences for all our students with foundations of literacy, numeracy, and universal design for learning. We are prepared for the upcoming changes and have been working hard to ensure our staff are supported. Professional development will begin this month for staff and continue into the new school year. We have expanded our consultant and leadership teams to support the implementation of the new curriculum. We are confident our classrooms will remain spaces of faith-based learning that deeply engage all staff and students with technological innovation, creativity, critical thinking, and authentic learning experiences. Click here to learn more about the new curriculum and how it will differ from what’s being taught currently in schools.
