A full-day (Monday to Thursday) prekindergarten class supported by Métis Nation–Saskatchewan is offered at Westmount Community School.
Prekindergarten programs focus on the development of the whole child -- physical, social, emotional, spiritual and intellectual. In prekindergarten children experience active, experiential learning through play and a comprehensive, integrated program within a prepared environment. Prekindergarten helps children develop language and communication skills; develop problem-solving skills; learn to co-operate with others; and make new friendships.
