Support for our youngest learners is critical to success. A variety of programs are in place to ensure the success of our early learners!

Primary Program

For our K to Grade 3s, each school offers a unique configuration to meet the needs of their children and community. Our primary learning environments are exciting places to be - creative, enthusiastic children and professional, caring adults working together to develop a love for learning. We focus on well being and belonging, exploration and creativity, social responsibility and diversity, and foundational skills in literacy and numeracy.
