At Dalhousie Community Kindergarten we value diversity in our classroom and have a long history of welcoming students with a wide range of backgrounds and abilities. Within that context, our governing body, the Dalhousie Community Kindergarten Society has allocated two Kindergarten registrations specifically for students that receive Program Unit Funding (PUF) / are special needs students.
To enable a smoother registration process for these two special needs spots, registration for those spaces will now be accepted before general Kindergarten registration (which is January 24, 2017). Special needs registrations will be accepted on a first come, first served basis starting the first Tuesday of each December at 9:00 a.m. which will be December 6, 2016 this year. This registration will be held open until general kindergarten registration in January. The first two registrations will be assessed by the Kindergarten Teacher to ensure program fit and could include a visit to the child’s current program. Parents will be advised of their child’s full acceptance into the program in a timely manner. All other subsequent registrations will be wait-listed in priority order to be considered if a special needs spot should become available.
Registration of special needs students for the 2017-18 school year will start Tuesday, December 6, 2016 at 9:00 a.m. at the Dalhousie Community Centre, 5432 Dalhart Road NW, Calgary, AB. We welcome your questions ahead of time to discuss your child and potential fit with our program.
