Early Childhood Development Program
We are currently taking applications for the 2016-2017 school year.
Will your child be 3 years old before March 1, 2016? (Born between March 1, 2012 and February 28, 2013 is the requirement from Alberta Learning).
Are you looking for a program that provides a language rich, theme-based Christian environment where children learn through play? Early Childhood Development Program is your answer!
The program operates Monday to Friday, 3 hours per day in either the morning or the afternoon. It is staffed by a certified Christian teacher with a B. Ed. specializing in early childhood development. Experienced Christian educational assistants knowledgeable in child development disabilities and intervention strategies are also part of the team.
How do I begin the registration process for my child for ECDP?
The first step is to apply for enrollment into the FMCS Society. We ask that one parent be a professing Christian as outlined in the FMCS Education Vision Document. The next step in the registration process is to complete an ECDP application form (available from the school office). Upon completion of the application form, you will be called with an appointment date and location. A birth certificate or any legal document providing proof of age is required.
How is the ECDP Program Designed?
The program is designed to build on each child’s, spiritual, social, physical, intellectual, creative and emotional development. Its aim is to fill or address developmental gaps, which may affect learning in kindergarten and higher grades. The faith based program offers a safe,warm and caring environment where children learn through play.
Is there any cost for the ECDP Program?
The school board has set up a $500 fee (for the year) for all students in the ECDP program to help cover costs. Also the yearly Society membership fee ($100.00) and the registration fee ($50.00) for first time families at FM Christian School will be due.
