Pre-K and Kindergarten

Success Starts Early!

PreK and Kindergarten marks the start of an exciting adventure for your child.

In Battle River School Division, our Early Learning programs foster an enthusiasm for learning through a play based approach. Children are immersed in a literacy & numeracy rich environment that encourages social interaction and independence.

BRSD programs are open to all children and we are committed to embracing every student in a safe and welcoming environment. 

Battle River School Division offers 4-year-old PreK programming in Camrose (Ecole Sifton School, Jack Stuart School, Sparling School) and Tofield (C.W. Sears School).

Programs run four half-days per week (Monday - Thursday) with hours of operation varying from school to school. 

Children with birth dates between January 1, 2018 - December 31, 2018 may enroll in the 2022/23 program. (Programming for 3yr-old children who have met criteria for Early Intervention Support may be available. Contact us for information regarding whether your child may qualify.) 

BRSD is in the process of applying to have its PreK programs licensed. In doing so, this will allow families to access the financial supports coming out of the Federal-Provincial child care agreement.
