Programs & Services - Early Learning - Overview

New Westminster Schools offer two early learning programs for children aged 0-5 years, StongStart and Ready Set Learn. Following the BC Ministry of Education and The Early Learning Framework, our teachers support children in their social, emotional, physical and academic development.

In late spring our elementary schools offer a Welcome to Kindergarten event for students who will be entering Kindergarten in the fall. To learn more about the program and to download resources, please visit The Learning Partnership website.  You may also read the BC Early Learning Framework.
