Saskatchewan Kindergarten Curriculum
Alerces follows the Saskatchewan Kindergarten Curriculum from the Saskatchewan Ministry of Education. Alerces is inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach and inquiry curriculum, as part of kindergarten classes becoming a true child-centered approach, letting children's curiosity grow, becoming inspired and directing their learning.
Children at Alerces learn Spanish through passive integration allowing them to learn at their own pace, in an environment rich with activities taught in Spanish, and supported through English as a secondary instruction, to ensure each student’s learning needs are being met. We have several families who enrol their children in French Immersion programs, following their kindergarten graduation at Alerces. Their children excel in grade one, having been integrated into second language immersion in their early learning education, and typically transition easily from Spanish to French.
