Two years ago a government agency was formed which was viewed as the loinl responsibility ol the Provincial Department of Culture Youth and Recreation Health and Social Development Education and Advanced Education, and whose mam concern was providing services to young children (0-8 years) and their parents This new agency was named Early Childhood Services (ECS) and is responsible lor providing money to licenced private operators or school districts to operate an Early Childhood Services proiect The term kindergarten is not used to name an ECS project because the type ol services offered to children and their parents under such a project far surpasses at typical kindergarten operation In order to qualify from ECS the local operator or school districts must establish an advisory committee made up of community agencies and a majority of parents ECS projects emphasize home and com- munity involvement in helping to establish a sense of dignity and self-worth within the child and the child s family The idea that the family and community should manage ECS projects has resulted In both Lethbndge Catholic and Public school districts deciding not to sponsor ECS projects yet However both school districts do rent space in schools to locally licenced operators when space is available An exception to the previous statement is the Project for Learning and Language Development which was first financed by Lethbndge Public School District No 51 and is now being partially funded by ECS Here is a list of existing services to young children in Lethbndge EARLY CHILDHOOD SERVICES (Kindergarten Lethbrldge School District No. 51. for Learning A Language Development A pre-school program for young children ages to who demonstrate learning language problems such as Unable to draw a recognizable picture with a crayon Unable to dress self properly Speech sounds like baby talk and does not speak m sentences Unable to pay attention or follow simple directions Unable to socialize with other children Program requires parent involvement Location General Stewart School Corvette Crescent Contact Pupil Personnel Services LSD No 51 Phone 327-4521 Capacity 24 Number of classes 2 Transportation can be arranged LETHBRIDGE PRESCHOOL SERVICES Preschool experience for any child but first preference given to handicapped children The program strives to develop the parent and child Each program has an itegration ol normal non-English speaking and handicapped children Aims to develop the child socially physically intellectually creatively emotionally in the classroom through play and field trips Also aims to develop parent understanding of child growth and development Location SI Paul School 10 Ave and 12 Street B North Winston Churchill High School 15 Ave and 18 Street North Fleetwood Bawden Elementary School, 9 Ave and 12 Street A South Capacity St Paul year olds) Fleetwood year oids) Winston Churchill year olds) Fees 00 per month Contact Patti Wiggelsworth.
