ECS Programme Statement

Early childhood is a significant period in human development. Independence, initiative, decision making, creativity, the ability to learn, the ability to relate to others and feelings of self-worth all have their beginnings in early childhood. What young children learn at this stage will have a major impact on successful learning experiences in school, on personal development and on future participation in society.

Early Childhood Services (ECS) refers to a continuum of programming that is developmentally appropriate and meets the diverse needs of young children and their families.

Kindergarten refers specifically to the education program for children in the year prior to Grade 1 and is part of the ECS continuum. The Kindergarten learner expectations describe learnings that are appropriate for young children and are part of a learning pathway. Some children are already developing, or have developed, some of the learnings described in the Kindergarten Program Statement.
