Welcome to Evergreen Catholic School Division's Early Learning Programs: Where learning takes root!
At Evergreen Catholic School Division, we understand the importance of a strong foundation for your child's education. That's why we offer exceptional Early Learning Programs in six of our schools, serving the communities of Devon, Hinton, Spruce Grove, Stony Plain, and Westlock. Join us in our vibrant Early Learning Programs and watch your child's education take root and flourish!
Our Early Learning Programs provide a comprehensive curriculum designed to foster growth and development in various areas. Here are some key features of our programs
- Planting Seeds of Knowledge: Our programs provide indoor and outdoor areas where children can dig deep into play and learning, cultivating a strong foundation for their academic journey.
- Branching Out into Learning Adventures: From religion and literacy to numeracy, art, music, science, gross motor skills, fine motor skills, dramatic play, sensory exploration, construction, listening, and technology, our programs cover a broad range of subjects and activities.
- Open-ended Experiences and Materials: We encourage creativity and critical thinking by providing open-ended experiences and materials that allow children to explore and express their ideas freely.
- Child-centred Projects: Our programs are designed to be responsive to children's interests. We create projects and activities based on their curiosity and passions, fostering a love for learning from an early age.
- Extended Pursuit of Interests: We understand the importance of deepening learning experiences. Therefore, our programs offer opportunities for children to pursue their interests for longer periods, allowing for a more comprehensive understanding of the subject matter.
