Pre-Kindergarten builds children's strengths and skills in a playful, language-rich environment. Children must meet provincial criteria to be eligible.
Pre-Kindergarten is for children with severe developmental delays who are between the ages of 2 years and 8 months and 4 years and 8 months old by September 1 of the year they are attending, as per Alberta Education criteria.
Pre-Kindergarten may be available to children for one or two years of programming, depending on children’s needs and eligibility.
To register for Pre-Kindergarten, your child will need to meet program eligibility requirements based on an assessment or diagnosis from a healthcare provider.
If your child has a report (dated after March 1) from Alberta Health Services or another healthcare provider, or is scheduled to receive an assessment after March 1, please contact a school offering Pre-Kindergarten.
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.
