Calgary is fortunate to have so many choices and approaches to Early Childhood Education. Preschools are primarily limited to four hours per day and can be in two-, three-, or five-day sessions. Anything longer than four hours falls under childcare and there are different regulations to reflect the longer time.
Learning to read is one of the most important developmental achievements of childhood, and it sets the stage for later school and life success. But learning to read is not straightforward.
Parents can play a key role in supporting the development of children’s early language skills and fostering a love of reading, before and after children start formal schooling.
Receiving an Individualized Program Plan (IPP) from your child’s teachers can be overwhelming. However, it’s worth putting in the effort to understand as the document offers a treasure trove of valuable strategies created specifically for your child by a team of experts. IPPs are not just a school document that helps a child’s education team. They can also be used as a guide for how you can align with that approach and implement the effective tactics in your home to help your kiddo succeed in every facet of life.
