    Dear Leduc and area parents/guardians and caregivers,

    We are excited to announce a new English as an Additional Language (EAL) Junior Kindergarten program in Leduc at Willow Park School for the 2024-2025 school year.

    EAL Junior Kindergarten is a social, play-based, targeted learning program for children whose main language at home is not English. The program allows your child to grow, interact, imagine, experiment, and explore while enhancing their English language skills.

    It’s a half-day program that runs four days a week, and is led by a certified teacher with an education assistant. To be accepted into the program, children must be 3 years and 8 months of age on August 31 of the respective school year.

    Consider having an intake screening and find out if your child can qualify for *free EAL Junior Kindergarten with us. For details and to enter intake screening, go to www.blackgold.ca/esl-junior-kindergarten.

    *Please note: To be eligible for Junior Kindergarten, your child can only have EAL as a need. If our team identifies your child presents with a developmental delay through intake or in class, they will need to transition to our Early Intervention Pre-Kindergarten sites.
