Ardmore School is a Grade K-8 school that also provides Early Childhood Services (ECS).

Our school operates on a 10-month school year. Northern Lights School Division adheres to the curriculum requirements for students in K-9 as set out by Alberta Education. Instructional Services provides support to ensure that the instructional programs meet the learning needs of all students, reflect the Alberta Program of Studies and operate within the Division's guidelines.

Care to Learn Preschool is a provincially-licensed organization located in nine schools in Northern Lights Public Schools.

We are 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.

Our 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.

We offer many options for parents to choose from.

For more information about our Care to Learn Preschool program, please visit the NLPS Care to Learn Preschool page.

All Northern Lights elementary schools offer a full-day of programming for Kindergarten students five days a week.

We enhance the provincially-mandated half-day Kindergarten curriculum with a Kindergarten Extension program based on Flight: Alberta’s Early Learning and Care Curriculum Framework to provide students with a full-day Kindergarten experience.

The Kindergarten curriculum is taught by a certified teacher. The Extension program is provided by our Extension Educational Assistants (EA’s).

How the time spent in each part of the program is divided up during the day may look slightly different at each school. For example, at some schools students may spend the morning focusing on the Kindergarten curriculum with their teacher, and the afternoon on the Flight curriculum with their Extension EA. At other schools, the teacher and EA may alternate throughout the day. Each school will share what the schedule looks like with parents prior to school starting in September.
