The RDC Child Care Centre offers an approved Early Childhood Services (Kindergarten) program which integrates activities based on the needs and interests of the children as well as the curriculum provided by Alberta Education. This program is especially suited to working or studying parents and children who require both child care and a Kindergarten or a Special Needs program.
The Kindergarten Program is in their new classroom in Room 1621. Kindergarten runs from 12:15p.m. to 3:15p.m. Fees include a Registration fee - $45.00 and a Kindergarten School Supply Fee - $30.00. The Kindergarten students also attend the Child Care Centre full time; costs for full time child care are additional.
We have incorporated a few programs into our ECS classroom in an effort to enhance the learning of our students.
We have incorporated the Seeds of Empathy program into our ECS which allows children to grow and develop in a wide range of social/emotional areas as they study weekly topics, read stories, and observe the development of a baby over the course of several months.
We are also big fans of the Handwriting Without Tears program, which fosters early literacy by breaking down the entire alphabet (upper and lower case) into four easily recognizable shapes. Using these shapes and a 'starting corner' the program makes learning to read and write easier and minimizes letter reversals.
When the children are not in Kindergarten they will be in one of our excellent playrooms. Which means one drop off and one pick up for you every day.
We have spaces available for September! Please call 403.357.3600 to register.
