Care to Learn Preschool is a provincially-licensed organization located in nine schools in Northern Lights Public Schools. It is a developmental preschool, providing learning, growth and play opportunities for pre-Kindergarten aged children through music, arts and crafts, games, physical activity, early math and literacy centres, and more.

“The goal is for students to learn through play, become familiar with routines, and interact with other children their own age,” explained Bouvier. “They have lots of fun, while at the same time they are learning and getting prepared for Kindergarten.”

The Care to Learn preschool program is designed to support families in their efforts to provide their preschool-aged child with the following essential skills: independence; decision-making; imagination and creativity; sense of community; communication; learning through exploration; problem-solving; feelings of value and self-worth; and relating to others.

Three-Hour programs are available at Ardmore SchoolCold Lake Elementary SchoolDuclos SchoolÉcole Plamondon SchoolGlendon SchoolIron River School, North Star Elementary SchoolVera M. Welsh Elementary School and Wandering River School. We also offer a Full-Day option at Duclos School in Bonnyville and École Plamondon School where children can attend preschool five days a week.
