GPPSD: the Right Start for a Bright Future

March 13, 2019

Enrolling your child in Kindergarten is an exciting milestone for both parents and children alike. With a variety of program structures and specialized programming choices, the Grande Prairie Public School District is the partner of choice in your child's learning journey.  Your child's education, growth and development is our priority.

With 15 schools offering Kindergarten throughout the city, ensuring that your child is immersed in a highly engaging and learning-centred kindergarten program is assured.  All Grande Prairie Public School District elementary schools offer Kindergarten programming for students within the school's attendance boundaries.  Additionally, Kindergarten programs of choice are offered at the following schools:

The Grande Prairie Public School District is pleased to provide choice for parents with a variety of Kindergarten programming structures to meet the needs of busy families.  Whether half a day, Monday-Friday or full day programming for two days per week meets your child's needs or your family's schedule, we are proud to offer a choice of different programs.

Our Kindergarten programs, offered in both English and French, are based on sound principles of early childhood education with a strong focus on character development. All students receive focused instruction to develop their literacy and numeracy skills.  Students become ready to read on their own because they experience language through talking, listening, watching and interacting.  Our Kindergarten programs, through games, song, rhymes, books and stories, are rich with language, learning, and laughter.

Transportation is provided at no cost to students in Kindergarten to Grade 3 who live 1.7 km away or further from their boundary school.

The Grande Prairie Public School District has been providing education to families in the Grande Prairie area for over 100 years serving over 8,400 students in 18 schools. We are committed to the continuous improvement of student achievement and learning opportunities for every student in our schools.

Kindergarten is the first step in your child's educational future. Take that step with the Grande Prairie Public School District.  For more information on the kindergarten programming choices that exist with the Grande Prairie Public School District, please click the button below:
