Kindergarten Reggio Inspired Program (KRIP) in Legal
Kindergarten Reggio Inspired Program (KRIP) is a new program beginning September 2013 in Legal at Centralta Community Centre. Inspired by the innovative Reggio Emilia teaching philosophy, children’s natural curiosity is embraced and their needs as a whole are nurtured. Children become very eager to learn, and important skills are developed through play and engaging projects. KRIP students receive 200 extra hours of learning a year. The program is suitable for children of all abilities who are aged 4½ by September.
KRIP Fact Sheet
Set in Sturgeon School Division, the LOGOS Program offers a rich religious and educational experience right in your own community. LOGOS is a non-denominational Christian-based program that teaches the Alberta curriculum in a nurturing environment grounded in Christian principles, where students are encouraged to love God and others. A fully funded program, LOGOS has a strong academic focus with the Christian viewpoint integrated throughout all subject areas.
The program is also an integral part of the school community, where students are actively involved in many events, programs and opportunities available at the school. Sturgeon School Division currently provides LOGOS programming for grades 1 to 4 at Landing Trail School in Gibbons and grades 5 to 9 at Lilian Schick School in Bon Accord. In addition, Redwater School offers a LOGOS Connect CTS optional class for grades 10 to 12.
The Early Intervention Program assists children between the ages of two-and-a-half to six who require a specialized program in speech and language, behaviour, and fine or gross motor skills. Each child's program is tailored for the individual needs of that child.
