The Saskatchewan Ministry of Education’s Early Learning Intensive Support Pilot is a program for three and four-year old children requiring intensive support to meet their potential. There will be two spaces available at both Sacred Heart School in Moose Jaw, and All Saints School in Swift Current. Children will be selected based upon a variety of factors, though a medical diagnosis is not required to qualify. The age of the child and other available services may impact selection. Although children who are three or four years of age can attend the program, priority will be given to four year olds with preference to children who are not enrolled in another early learning program where intensive supports are being provided.
The half-day pilot program provides additional spaces and supports in those two Pre-Kindergarten programs to provide opportunities for children to engage in inclusive learning with other children the same age. Support will be provided through a collaborative team approach to meet individualized needs and to promote strengths from learning and participation. The unique needs and circumstances of the child, the class and facility will be considered for each situation.
Please read the Early Learning Intensive Support Pilot brochure for additional information for families.
