Nature Kindergarten Registration Now Open
UPDATE: To meet the high demand for 2019-2020 Nature Kindergarten, registration forms are still being accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
February 4, 2019 - Parkland School Division (PSD) Early Childhood Services has developed a partnership with Muir Lake School and Scouts Canada Camp (at Chickakoo Lake Recreation Area) to create an optional Kindergarten program that will get children active and in touch with nature while essentially extending a child's kindergarten experience from half-time to full-time in the process.
The program responds to identified early childhood indicators that demonstrate a need for additional social and physical development programming within our division. Nature-Based Kindergarten also seeks to explore the impact on early learning using the natural environment as a place where curiosity, play, problem-solving and calculated risk-taking can take place in a safe way.
2019-2020 Registration Now Open
The 2019-2020 Nature Kindergarten Registration Form is now available.
Submit your completed registration form by emailing it to firstname.lastname@example.org, faxing it to 780-962-0365 or dropping it off at any PSD school office marked "Attention: Haefa Onaissi".
Please note: Your child must first be registered for Kindergarten at a Parkland School Division school before they can be registered in the Nature-Based Kindergarten program. Complete information on the registration process can be found on our Registration page.
For further details about this program, visit the Division's Nature Kindergarten webpage.
