Kindergarten is the start of an exciting adventure full of promise for children and their families. At the Calgary Board of Education (CBE), we understand that children bring their own unique talents and gifts to their learning experience, which is why we personalize students’ learning to help them reach their full potential. In the early years, personalized attention can make a meaningful difference in children’s lives. That is what sets Calgary Board of Education early learning programs apart from the rest.
Even though my kids are teenagers now, I still remember those first days of school as I tearfully watched them get on the bus and head off to Kindergarten. Sigh, it goes by so fast… If your little ones are just starting school, they (and you!) might be a little nervous about this new experience.
Your children are out of school enjoying the summer and before you know it, they will be boarding the school bus once again, or for many children, for the very first time as they enter Kindergarten. For young elementary students who have never been on a school bus, waiting for the bus on their first day of school can be an overwhelming experience. You’ve heard the term ‘It takes a village,’ and it truly takes a complex team to ensure the safe transportation of students to and from school. This team includes representatives from the schools, the school boards, the bus companies and, of course, the responsible parents or the caregivers and the students themselves.
