The DMG Kindergarten Screening is set for May 2nd, 2019.  Parents can now book a timeslot for their child to be screened in advance of the 2019-2020 School Year.  Please call the school at 403-938-6221 and speak with our secretary, Lana Schultz, to book your child's appointment time.  


What is Kindergarten Screening?  

All children entering Foothills School Division Kindergarten Programs are assessed using the EYE-DA (Early Years Evaluation) by our kindergarten teachers and learning coaches.  This tool helps our team understand who your child is, where they are at with their development and readiness for kindergarten.  Screening also includes our school speech and OT Thereapists so we can refer for additional assesment if necessary.   It is not ever used to determine eligibility for Kindergarten.  If your child is or will be 5 years old by December 31st and you live in our new school boundaries your child can attend kindergarten.
