Kid's Place Pre-K Programs 

PRE-K BANNER 2017/2018


The Kid's Place is a City owned licensed Pre-Kindergarten program for children ages 3-6 and has been running for over 30 years in Grande Prairie. 

Throwing caps Our main goals for The Kid's Place Pre-K programs are:

  • Help children adjust to new situations and class rules
  • Teach children ways to express their needs and to listen to the ideas of their peers
  • Teach children values like respect, honesty, and how to share, take turns, negotiate and compromise as well as to how to express feelings in a positive manner
  • Prepare children for kindergarten

SCHOOL YEAR 2017-2018
Will run from September 5, 2017 - June 28, 2018

  • Monday/ Wednesdays: 9:00 a.m.- 12:00 p.m. 
  • Tuesday/ Thursdays: 9:00 a.m.- 12:00 p.m. 
  • Tuesday/Thursdays: 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Cost is $209.00 per month.

Pre-writing skills are the fundamental skills children need to develop before they are able to write and ready. The Kid's Place Pre-K program will work on fine motor strength, pincer grasp, eye-hand coordination, “word families”, phonics and “dolch words”.

The most important aspect about this program is that your child will learn the basics of reading and writing without pressure and stress so that they are ready for the next step!
