SD67 is pleased to be offering an afternoon PILOT preschool program from May 17 - June 25 this year. This program will run out of our Columbia Strong Start classroom. The May to June group will be for children who are 4 or 5 years old and attending Kindergarten in September 2021. The intention of this group is to have Monday – Friday attendance from 12:00pm – 2:45pm.
As a means of planning, we are also opening registration for our September program for 4-year-old children. This option is intended for children who will be entering Kindergarten in September 2022. Depending on the volume of applications, we will be considering 2 different cohorts for this opportunity. The options will be a Monday, Wednesday, Friday group and a Tuesday, Thursday group.
It is important to note that this opportunity is a byproduct of a grant from the Ministry of Education and we anticipate the funds will run out sometime during the upcoming school year. As such, we have yet to set an end date for this pilot program, but want all participants to be aware this is the case. With this in mind, as soon as we have determined an end date, communication will be shared with participating families ahead of time.
Following our registration window, our team will facilitate a random selection process to determine the participants, and parents will be notified as soon as possible.
Please direct any further questions toward SD67 Director of Instruction, Allen Beckingham at 250-770-7700.
