In response to the announcement made on April 6 by the Alberta government to return to Step 1 under "The Path Forward" Plan, the Calgary JCC weight room will be closed until further notice. One-on-one personal training remains a great option at this time, as well as private swim lessons and household pool bookings. Learn more...

KidStart Literacy

Half Day Programs for Children Ages 4 and 5
Monday/Wednesday/Friday or Monday/Wednesday
9:00am – 12:00pm

Registration opens Monday, February 15 for existing families, and Wednesday March 3 for the general public.

The goal of KidStart Literacy is to provide a quality early learning program that inspires children to create, discover, and achieve. Best practice does more than teach children to count and say the alphabet. Your children will have the opportunity to learn and develop through play and exploration to gain the necessary skills for kindergarten readiness.

This unique program is taught by Dianne Struthers using the Handwriting Without Tears, Firm Foundations Early Literacy Teaching and Learning, Safe Spaces, as well as Peaceful Classroom curriculums. In addition to learning how to self-regulate basic emotions and how to manage them in an appropriate manner, your child will learn generosity, treating others with respect and gentleness, and helping when possible. Our program schedule will provide a balance of structured and unstructured times, running the full year from September through to June, and following the CBE calendar.
