Nature-based Kindergarten Pilot

Parkland School Division (PSD) Early Childhood Services and the Wellness Initiative have developed a partnership with the YWCA YoWoChAs Outdoor Education Centre to create an optional Kindergarten program pilot 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.  For more information, visit the Nature-based Kindergarten article in our news section.
