City Parks and Recreation is offering pre-school options.

Recreation department re-school programs facilitate learning

The City of Campbell River Recreation Department will now offer parents “graduated” options for pre-school programs

The City of Campbell River Recreation Department will now offer parents “graduated” options for pre-school programs.

Starting in September, parents can choose between a two-hour pre-school program on Mondays and Wednesday and a four-hour early learning program on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Early Childhood educators Carolyn Sharpe and Claudia Sylvester heard a demand for a longer program that would ease the transition for some children between a two-hour pre-school program and a full-day in kindergarten.

“In response, the community now has options for a graduated system,” says recreation programmer Leah Knutson. “When children first start to go to preschool at three years, they are comfortable with a shorter program. As they get older, parents can enroll them in the early learning program, which will help prepare them for longer hours when they enter school.”

“Key learning takes place in a child’s first six years. This learning sets the foundation for success in school and in life. The Community Kids pre-school and early learning programs are designed to facilitate this learning in a supportive, social environment,” Knutson adds.

Both programs still have space for September registrations.
