Our goal is to continue to work towards creating culturally safe environments for all families and learners as they transition from early learning into kindergarten with a foundation of relationships and support. This program works in collaboration with the School No. 57 District Early Learning Program and the Community Early Learning Programs to help minimize barriers to early learning opportunities within our School District No.57 and Community as we want to support as many families as possible as they begin to transition their children into Kindergarten.
