Kindergarten and Early Learning

Kindergarten in Peace River School Division (PRSD) schools is research and play-based, delivered by kind, caring, and highly qualified staff. Your child will interact, imagine, experiment, and explore to add to their knowledge, learn new skills and practice what they’ve learned. Every child is unique and we ensure that students are provided with specialized and targeted programming and supports to meet their individual needs.

We believe that it takes a community to raise a child, and in our schools, we take a team and family approach to teaching and learning. The involvement of, and communication with our families is very important to the success of a child. In PRSD schools, there are many ways for parents to be involved and for the school and families to interact.
