Student Age Requirements
Children must turn five years of age by the last day of December of the year the child begins kindergarten.
While Kindergarten is an optional program, a child MUST start school if they are six years old as of September 1. Each of our schools offering elementary programming hold information sessions for parents in late winter or spring. Check with your designated school for more information.
Foothills School Division’s kindergarten program is guided by Alberta Education’s Kindergarten program philosophy. Building on what children have already learned in their home and community settings, it supports the uniqueness and integrity of every child, promotes a positive attitude towards lifelong learning and seeks to help children value themselves as capable, competent learners.
In Kindergarten, children explore and experiment with their environment and learn how to interact with others. The Kindergarten program, which is funded by Alberta Education, addresses seven learning areas:
Citizenship and Identity
Environment and Community Awareness
Personal and Social Responsibility
Physical Skills and Well-being
