Willow Park Preschool Partners with the I'm for Kids Team

Willow Park Preschool is pleased to announce a new partnership with the I’m for Kids Team. This organization provides screening and assessments to preschool children for speech/language and fine motor skills. These assessments are provided free of charge and are conducted at the preschool by licensed speech/language pathologists and occupational therapists. Participation in this program is completely optional. This program is only available to our 4 year old students.

If you choose to have your child screened and the results indicates that some extra help would add to your child’s learning experience the I’m for Kids Team would provide extra play based programming in the preschool. Again this extra service will be provided free of charge as it is funded by Alberta Education. The program would run throughout the school year with a year-end assessment occurring in March to evaluate progress.

We will be distributing consent forms on the first day of preschool to parents. If you are interested in participating in the initial screening/ assessment process please complete the forms as well as provide a copy of your child’s birth certificate or legal documentation of your child’s citizenship and age. Please return all paperwork to your teacher on the first day of class. Again participation in this program is completely optional.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the preschool at 403-271-7016.
