Kindergarten in EICS


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. 


Please note that Kindergarten registration for the 2018-2019 school year will be available online at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, January 15th, 2018.  See below for registration details.  Please register at your school of choice.  Currently, EICS is reviewing programming in the Sherwood Park area. Should the decision of the board on March 21 impact the program at your chosen school, EICS will accommodate your child at another school.
