KinderPAL is an early learning Program of Choice for kindergarten-age students in GPPSD schools. The Play and Learn experience is programming in a classroom setting where students experience peer-based play as they continue developing and growing their knowledge.
Students will experience full school day learning with kindergarten programming for half their time, and the other half is KinderPAL. It follows the school’s full-day bell schedule and calendar. A certified teacher provides kindergarten curriculum instruction, and an Early Learning Instructor provides KinderPAL programming.
KinderPAL is a fee-based program. Families can either pay a fee of $350 per month or pay the full amount up front. Families will be required to register for the full year. KinderPAL does not qualify for childcare subsidy. Please refer to Government of Canada – CRA Child Care Expenses Information to determine which expenses can be claimed on your income tax.
If your neighbourhood school does not offer KinderPAL, parents may apply to enroll at a school offering KinderPAL. Families will be responsible for transportation and students will be required to return to their neighbourhood school for Grade 1.
New students registering can indicate in the Registration Form you want your child registered for KinderPAL. Mid-year registrations may be accepted, check with your KinderPAL School.
