NLPS’ Early Years Program works with community partners to enhance programs and provide services and support for families and young learners, in order to meet the developmental needs of children prior to entering school. We strive to create warm and welcoming environments in our schools for families with young children.
Early Years programs include Ready, Set, Learn & StrongStart Centres
Ready, Set, Learn events
Ready, Set, Learn events are intended for families and their preschool-aged children (ages 3-5). It is all about fostering positive connections between families, the school system and local community agencies.
Inclusion in NLPS
Inclusion is the belief that all students should, where possible, receive their education in age-appropriate regular classrooms in their neighbourhood schools. The school district, together with parents, determines the support(s) needed for successful inclusion.
Inclusion is a continuum of options designed to foster the feelings of belonging, acceptance and community.
