Preschool Early Intervention Services
Starting in September 2015, our preschool was fortunate to be taken on by Big Plans for Little Kids, a non-profit agency that provides services to preschool -age children (see www.bigplans.org). These services are funded through Alberta Education. Four year olds are offered developmental screening, further testing if needed, and support (therapies) when needed. This type of early intervention leads to lasting benefits in school achievement, emotional and mental health, and physical well-being. We are excited to be working with Big Plans!
