Glamorgan Community Kindergarten teacher Val DriedgerWe receive the majority of our funding from Alberta Education with the expectation that we employ a certified teacher, teach the approved curriculum and follow all policies and guidelines set out by Alberta Education. However, Glamorgan Community Kindergarten is unique in its ability to offer families a variety of choices to enhance their child’s kindergarten experience.

Options at Glamorgan Community Kindergarten

  1. Your child may attend either a morning or afternoon class five days a week without paying any tuition, as the Alberta Government fully funds half-day Kindergarten. The advantages of our program include small class sizes (maximum 18, usually smaller), effective child/teacher ratios, as well as the additional services of an Occupational and/or Speech Therapist, if needed.
  2. You may opt to pay tuition to enroll your child for their first year of Kindergarten in our program, assuring your child a placement in your neighbourhood school, or the school of your choice, for a second year of Kindergarten. This will also ensure a secure Grade One placement. Your child must turn 5 on or before March 1 of their kindergarten school year to be eligible to attend. If you choose this path, tuition is based on Alberta Education’s budget which is presented in the spring of each year. Tuition can be paid in one installment or monthly installments.
  3. You may also opt to pay tuition for your child to attend our Kindergarten program while also enrolled in your neighbourhood Kindergarten or other school of your choice, thus offering a full-day option for your child.

Options 2 and 3 are subject to certain expectations and will be accepted on a case by case basis.

Please feel free to contact us at 403-249-5275 with any questions about any of these options or to arrange for a classroom visit to see for yourself what makes the Glamorgan Community Kindergarten exceptional!
