Saskatoon Public Schools offers prekindergarten programs for three- and four-year-old students at 17 schools. Prekindergarten programming is offered where children may benefit from additional supports such as speech, language, and social development programming.
Prekindergarten programs focus on the development of the whole child -- physical, social, emotional, spiritual and intellectual. In prekindergarten children experience active, experiential learning through play and a comprehensive, integrated program within a prepared environment. Students, family members and teachers work together to foster the child’s development. Prekindergarten helps children to:
- develop language and communication skills,
- develop problem-solving skills,
- learn to co-operate with others,
- make new friendships,
- prepare for the school environment.
Schools offering prekindergarten are: Buena Vista, Caroline Robins, Caswell, Charles Red Hawk, Fairhaven, Forest Grove, Howard Coad, King George, Lester B. Pearson, Mayfair, Pleasant Hill, Princess Alexandra, Sutherland, Vincent Massey, wâhkôhtowin (formerly Confederation Park), Westmount and W.P. Bate.
