Early Intervention, Program Unit Funding

Our preschool programs offer 3 and 4-year-olds the opportunity to learn and develop their skills in a play and faith-based environment.  Led by a certified teacher and supported by Educational Assistants, children will learn through play that is integrated with arts, literacy, numeracy, speech and language activities.  Children in the program benefit from a team of consultants such as Speech-Language Pathologist, Occupational Therapist, Speech-Language Pathologist Assistant, Physiotherapist, and Inclusive Learning Consultants.

Our programs will take place at Madonna Catholic School in Sherwood Park and at St. John XXIII Catholic School in Fort Saskatchewan.
