    Kindergarten

    Good Spirit School Division believes in building strong foundations for bright futures. As such the Division is committed to providing high quality early learning environments for Kindergarten students to support readiness for learning. Kindergarten is a place where your child will learn and grow; where you can expect a stimulating learning environment, active learning, and appreciation for diversity. The Kindergarten program advocates development of the whole child – social-emotionally, physically, intellectually, and spiritually.
