Nature-Based Kindergarten Pilot Program

Parkland School Division (PSD) Early Childhood Services has developed a partnership with Muir Lake School and Scouts Canada Camp (at Chickakoo Lake Recreation Area) to create an optional Kindergarten pilot program that will get children active and in touch with nature while essentially extending a child's kindergarten experience from half-time to full-time in the process. Registration for the 2017 - 2018 school year is now closed as the program is full. For more information or to find out how to get on a waiting list for cancellations, visit the Nature-Based Kindergarten page.
