Kindergarten

Why is Early Childhood Learning important?

Children who take part in Early Childhood Learning often benefit in several ways including improved social skills, less or no need for special education instruction during subsequent school years, better grades, and enhanced attention spans.

Childhood education specialists generally agree that young children learn best when they are not pushed too hard, when they have an opportunity to interact with their peers, and their parents and instructors treat them kindly. That's how our programs are designed!

Children enrolled in Early Childhood Learning programs at Red Deer Catholic Regional Schools learn through play-based instruction and educational activities. 

Kindergarten is an exciting landmark year in the lives of children and their families and an exhilarating learning opportunity.

An exciting landmark year in the lives of children and their families. Kindergarten is an exhilarating learning opportunity that builds a strong foundation for future education.
