Newcombville Elementary School is pleased to be one of nine SSRSB schools to be introducing the provincial Pre Primary Program in September 2018. This marks the second phase of roll outs across the province.

The Pre Primary Program is a play-based program for four-year-old children taught by trained Early Childhood Educators (ECEs).  ECEs will use the N.S. Early Learning Curriculum Framework and Educators Guide to deliver the program.  This is a developmentally appropriate and approved curriculum model used in an early learning environment.

Children will be engaging in exciting and stimulating learning environments that are child-centered and led by their interests. Educators will create inviting indoor and outdoor environments and materials that encourage curiosity, discovery, and wonder. The Program's philosophy is committed to inclusive practices that promote family, diversity, and community involvement. The learning environments in Pre-Primary practice caring and responsive approaches for empowering children in developing their abilities and skills through developmentally appropriate activities and expectations.

Eligible children for this program must be living in the school's catchment area and be four years old by Dec. 31, 2018. This is a voluntary program. To register your child, please visit the school to complete a registration form. You will need proof of address as well as your child's birth certificate.
