The Little Schoolhouse Kindergarten & Preschool
Welcome to the Little Schoolhouse located in beautiful Bragg Creek, Alberta, Canada. Please view our site and if you have any questions regarding our Preschool or Kindergarten programs we would be more than happy to meet with you.
A Letter From The Teacher
Here at the Little Schoolhouse we embrace each child’s unique learning style as they discover and explore with a variety of materials. Our Preschool and Kindergarten programs are child-centred and inquiry-based, rooted in Reggio Emilia philosophy and the pedagogy of the Early Learning Curriculum Framework. With small classroom sizes and specialized services, we see the potential to learn and grow in all children and are honored to work with diverse learners.
The Little Schoolhouse has been a treasured part of the Bragg Creek Community since 1974. We appreciate the support of our students’ families and the people in this community who value early childhood education.
The entire staff at the Little Schoolhouse comes to the classroom with extensive knowledge and experience in early childhood education best practices.
Registration for our 2023-24 programs is now open! Please email me at email@example.com if you have any questions. We cannot wait to meet you!

*FREE* - Fully Funded by AB Ed.
Our Kindergarten program is funded by Alberta Education and we therefore follow the rationale and philosophy that has been prepared by Alberta Education. The purpose of Kindergarten is to provide learning experiences that are developmentally appropriate in order to meet the diverse needs of children and promote a positive attitude toward lifelong learning.
3-Mornings 8:45am-11:45am (Monday/Wednesday/Friday) - FULL for the 2023-24 school year

*Please note all children must be independent in the washroom to enrol.
The main purpose of the program is to give young children a fun and meaningful introduction to a preschool environment, where they can learn to interact well with other children and adults. In the process children are being well prepared for Kindergarten and beyond. Manipulative and creative activities now focus more specifically on pre-reading, pre-writing, and pre-math skills, and children are encouraged to plan and share their activities of the day.
SCREENING AND ASSESSMENTS
Specialized services through Bragg Creek Education Services Association provides Mild/Moderate and PUF funding, and enhances the classroom with Speech-Language & Occupational Therapy. Each September, our team of specialists 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. Forms will be sent home to every family.
