Pre-primary FAQ: Site Selection

Why isn’t this program available to everyone in the province? There isn’t one in my area.

By 2020-21, the Pre-primary Programs will be available in all school communities across the province.

Some elementary schools are overcrowded and there isn’t space to introduce a Pre-primary Program. How will you address this issue?

As we continue to expand pre-primary across the province over the next four years, we will look at alternative arrangements for those areas that have a lack or limited space in schools to deliver the program.

How many pre-primary sites will there be after the four years?

The Pre-primary Program will be available in approximately 250 school communities by 2020-21.

How did you make the selection for schools this year?

Regional Centres for Education and the Conseil scolaire acadien provincial provided the department with schools that they thought would be appropriate Pre-primary options for this coming year.
