Kindergarten in St. Albert Public Schools

Independence, initiative, decision making, creativity, the ability to learn, relationships and feelings of self-worth - all have their beginnings in early childhood.

We believe that each child is unique and, together with parents as our partners, we build upon children's natural curiosity and spontaneity, encouraging and supporting them as they take their first step into school.

Our English, French Immersion, Cogito and Logos Christian Kindergarten programs prepare children for entry into Grade 1 and provide the foundation for success in education.

In safe and caring environments, guided by qualified and caring professionals, Kindergarten students:

  • try new things, take risks and learn to accept rules and responsibility while developing positive relationships with others;
  • build on and develop problem-solving skills and the language/reading base already begun in the home;
  • develop attitudes and behaviours that promote wellness and a healthy lifestyle;
  • become aware of similarities and differences between themselves and others, and use their senses to explore, investigate and describe their environments; and
  • express themselves through poetry, songs and drama.

Kindergarten Programs

  • Each year, hundreds of parents enroll their children in one of our English Kindergarten programs which promote growth and excellence.
  • Others opt for the French Immersion Kindergarten programs where, in an environment that reflects the richness of our Canadian heritage, children grow together to become the best that they can be.
  • Some choose Logos, a Christian alternative program, where the teaching of knowledge, skills and attitudes is done within a Christian context.
  • And others choose Cogito, an academic alternative program. This program offers an expanded curriculum in structured classrooms to support high levels of academic achievement. Direct instruction of phonics (letter-sound relationships) is used to develop early literacy. Students wear uniforms.

All programs are values based, and in every school students, parents and staff work collaboratively to create successful experiences that advance the social, emotional, physical and intellectual growth of children entrusted to our care.


All of our schools offer the regular half-day Kindergarten program as well as full-day programs. Please note, however, that since Alberta Education funds only the regular half-day program, families must pay extra for the full-day option (approximately $325 per month). Full-day programs are offered pending sufficient registrations.
