Safety and supervision

Guidelines and supervision are provided in all preschool aged programs. To ensure the health and safety of participants, the programs have the following standards in place:

  • Our staff are selected on the basis of experience, ability to relate to children, and leadership skills. Staff receive training and are certified in Standard First Aid with CPR, and the High Five Principles of Healthy Child Development.
  • Lower ratios are in place for younger ages and some speciality programs.

Children with disabilities are welcome

Our playschool programs welcome and include children with disabilities. Please make us aware of any disabilities or behavioural needs that may affect your child's participation. While our goal is inclusive participation, there are times when a child requires more support than our current ratios are able to provide, the program supervisor may request an aide. If required, it is the parent's responsibility to arrange for and provide the aide. Contact the program supervisor to obtain the Aide Expectation Information.

Your child's speech development: where should they be?

Evaluate your child's progress in speech development. If you have concerns, talk to your child's teacher. Contact Alberta Health Services, or Health Link at 811 if you would like more information on how to assist your child with any of the following: Speech development, Fine motor, Large motor skills, and more.
