Every child matters:

As part of our effort to meet your child’s educational needs in the Heritage Early Learning Program, we provide the opportunity for free Early Childhood Screening and Assessment. Through our private service provider, Bragg Creek Education Services Association, a Speech-Language Pathologist and Occupational Therapist screen and assess young children ages 3-5 years to identify possible areas of focus in speech-language, fine or gross motor, and sensory development. 

If needs are identified, your child might be eligible for assistance funded by Alberta Education, which is designed to get children ready for grade school. Screening takes place in class every September and forms will be send home to every family.
