Children learn by doing and play is their work. Kindergarten programs not only help prepare children for grade one, but also set a foundation for later school success. Children learn how to interact with others and to see themselves as individuals and learners. Bellevue Kindergarten follows the Alberta Education’s Kindergarten Statement to provide learner expectations in the seven learner areas:
- Early Literacy
- Early Numeracy
- Citizenship & Identity
- Environment & Community Awareness
- Personal & Social Responsibility
- Physical Skills & Well Being
- Creative Expression
All kindergarten parents are encouraged to become involved in the Bellevue Local Advisory Committee.
When Is My Child Eligible To Attend Kindergarten?
Children who are at least 4 years 6 months of age and less than 6 years of age on September 1st are eligible to attend Kindergarten for that school year.
How Do I Register My Child?
Registration for the upcoming school year begins in early January.
At Bellevue, we offer full-day (part-time) and half-day (full-time) Kindergarten programs in French and English. Programs offered depend upon sufficient enrolment, space and resources.
Supporting documentation (copy of birth certificate, and proof of residency) is required at the school when registering your child.
Is Transportation Provided for ECS?
Kindergarten students follow the regular Black Gold Regional Transportation policy. It should be noted if the ECS Program is a half-day program, there is no bussing available from Black Gold for noon hour, at the end of the morning program, or at the beginning of the afternoon program. Some Beaumont childcare providers do provide transportation at noon.
