Early Childhood Development Programs

The goal of the County of Grande Prairie Early Childhood Development Programs is to provide play-based learning in a safe and nurturing environment in which each child has the opportunity to develop to his/her potential socially, emotionally, physically, creatively and intellectually.

Parent and Tot Programs

For children 0-6 years old and their parents/ caregivers.  A drop-in style program where parents actively engage with their child in a fun, social environment that combines opportunities for free play, information sharing and structured play activities.  Provided at no charge through FCSS funding.

Playschools Programs

All County of Grande Prairie Playschool programs are child-centered and focus on delivering developmentally appropriate programming for 4 year olds, with the exception of Clairmont where we offer a program for 3 year olds as well. Our Early Childhood Development staff are licensed to plan and deliver programs based on the needs, interests, and developmental stages of the children.
