Early Learning

          

 Pre-Kindergarten

The Saskatchewan Ministry of Education's Pre-Kindergarten Program is a developmentally-appropriate early childhood education program for three and four year old children. Space is limited and children who would benefit most from enhanced programming are prioritized for enrolment.

The half-day program has a qualified teacher who provides play-based programming for 16 children for 10 months of the year. Programming focuses on holistic child development: social-emotional, physical, intellectual and spiritual development.

Regina Public Schools hosts a Pre-Kindergarten program in 24 of its elementary schools. Please contact the school nearest to you for more information.

Familes wanting to complete and submit a Pre-Kindergarten application for their child(ren) are encouraged to do so in spring (i.e. April, May, and June), over the sumer, and by the end of August. Completed application forms should be submitted at the school. When schools are closed over the summer, completed application forms can be submitted at the Regina Public Schools Division Office to be forwarded to schools when schools reopen in the fall. The review of application forms submitted begins in late June and continues in late August with families informed of student selection by the end of September.

Kindergarten

The Saskatchewan Ministry of Education Kindergarten program builds on early learning principles, paying particular attention to the environment and the roles of conversations and play in children's learning experiences. The teacher facilitates inquiry through children's play. Environments are carefully designed to inspire children to wonder, ask questions, and be curious; promote the holistic nature of children's learning; and encourage independence, responsibility, and participation.

Regina Public Schools offers half-day programs and welcomes new Kindergarten students who will be five years of age or older on December 31st of the year they register. Regina Public Schools also offers French Immersion Kindergarten programs at some of our schools.

Regina Public Schools hosts a Kindergarten program in all of its elementary schools. Please contact the school nearest to you for more information.

Familes wanting to register their child(ren) for Kindergarten are encouraged to complete and submit a registration for in late winter (i.e March) with registration forms submitted at the school.
