Ready, Set, Learn is an initiative that recognizes that families need positive connections with the school system and community agencies that provide relevant resources and information. This program is designed to help you and your preschooler get ready for success in school and become a lifelong learner. All our Elementary Schools in School District No. 5 (Southeast Kootenay) will be offering an opportunity for all 3 to 5 year olds and their parents or guardians to receive an information/activity package. This event is a partnership between the province, the district, and the early childhood teachers in Cranbrook, Fernie, Sparwood, Jaffray, and Elkford. Events are held in the months of May and June.
This program is intended for children born between January 1, 2018 and December 31, 2020. Welcome to Kindergarten activities are being planned separately. For more information, contact your local neighbourhood school at the number below.
Parents and caregivers will receive helpful tips for supporting their preschooler's learning and development. They will also be given information about local services available.
Four year olds, those children who will be entering Kindergarten in September 2023, will also be invited to Kindergarten Orientation at their neighborhood school.
