CVS Early Learning Programs

Junior Kindergarten

Children’s Creative Early Learning Centre believes that early childhood is a wonderful time of imagination and exploration. To foster and develop this special time in a child’s life, we look forward to making connections with your child. Our program targets children 3 to 4 years old. The program is offered Tuesday to Thursday from 8:20 AM to 11:20 AM in accordance with school holidays and closures.

Monthly fees for the combined 3/4-year-old class are $180 for 3 days/week, 3 hours/day with a $50 non-refundable registration fee. 

Please contact the school at 780-865-2569 with any questions.

Kindergarten Information


Starting your learning journey in Kindergarten is an exciting time for children and for their families and we welcome everyone to begin with us at Crescent Valley School. To ensure your child gets the best start in September, we have put together some information to help make your planning as smooth as possible. If you want to learn more, we invite you to call us at 1-780-865-2569. We would also be happy to arrange a personal tour of our Kindergarten classrooms with you and your child as we want you both to be as comfortable as possible. You will also find information below in regards to transportation and ideas to help you prepare your child for entering school.

We are also thrilled to offer a full five-day Kindergarten program at our school for those families wishing to place their child in a full-time program. Of course, we also offer the flexibility of shorter weeks if this is more suitable to meet the needs of your child. Depending on how comfortable your child’s transition to school is, you can always make the decision to increase the days later in the year. At Crescent Valley, we take pride in providing the best-individualized learning program to ensure educational success for every child.

We have also eliminated all school and transportation fees for our Kindergarten program. Classroom school supplies will be provided by the school although we do ask that children bring a pair of indoor shoes to help keep our school tidy. At registration, your child will become a Crescent Valley BEAR and you will  be given some supplies and resources to help your little one prepare for school in September. Don’t forget to have them decorate their lunch bag and put their name on the outside so they know which bag to bring home each day.

Welcome to Kindergarten – let’s get ready to learn together!

Important Resources for ‘Getting Ready to Learn’

When Can My Child Start Kindergarten?
To register for Kindergarten in the 2020–2021 school year, your child must be five years old on or before December 31, 2020. 

Important Dates
To assist in our planning for next year, we encourage families to register their new Kindergartners, and make transportation arrangements if needed, by the end of May. 

Kindergarten Information Nights/ Open Houses
With health and safety restrictions under the current pandemic, GYPSD schools will not be offering open house tours this year.

Programming Options
Our Kindergarten classrooms provide literacy-rich, play-based programming which is led by welcoming and dedicated early childhood teachers and enthusiastic educational assistants.

In addition, all of our early learners have access to our division’s School Linked Team to help your child succeed. This team’s dedicated members include a speech-language pathologist, occupational therapist, behavior consultant, literacy/early learning lead teacher, technology lead teacher, and a Family School Liaison Counselor.  

Student Transportation
For our Kindergarten students, we offer no-cost transportation fees for our families as children transition into their first year of schooling. We invite you to contact our transportation department directly to learn more or get started early to reserve your child’s seat on the bus by registering online.

Family Involvement
Family engagement is one of our priorities at Crescent Valley School as your involvement is a key component in the success of your child's learning. We encourage you to get involved in your school community such as joining the School Council at your school, volunteering at our school, or by talking with your child’s teacher.
