Where is your child going to school next year?
Unique Offerring for Children Going into Kindergarten NEXT Year: NATURE KINDERGARTEN
Then you can register your child for Nature Kindergarten which is on Monday, Wednesdays and alternating Fridays.
it is fantastic programming, for students, promoting mental, physical and cognitive health. Your child will be outdoors a lot.
You must pay for Nature Kindergarten $400 / month (I think).
This program will run out of Holy Redeemer School and the Strathcona Wilderness Center. A NATURE KINDERGARTEN OPEN HOUSE is scheduled for February 13th @ 6:00 pm AT HOLY REDEEMER school in Ardrossan. Please attend if you are interested. Don"t worry about "Ardrossan". I understand that the Sherwood Park kiddos will have a pickup and drop off point in Sherwood Park. Please go to find out the details. I strongly support this programming. What an opportunity, creativity, learning, and health.
If you may be interested then select TUESDAY AND THURSDAY AND ALTERNATING FRIDAYS FOR MADONNA KINDERGARTEN.
