“Selecting a Kindergarten in Calgary was a difficult decision for us as a family living in the deep South and deciding what school to take our daughter. We initially thought as parents that it wouldn’t matter what Calgary school we send our daughter to kindergarten – public school or private school. We couldn’t be more wrong.
Now that our daughter is in Calgary public grade one, we have learned that the Kindergarten program offered at Learning Experience was the best decision we have ever made. Our daughter excels in everything and we believe that is a direct result of having her in the kindergarten class at Learning Experience.
Kindergarten class at Learning Experience is more than playing with blocks and colouring between the lines. Their program teaches the fundamentals that we use everyday and what some of us adults have forgotten, such as simply being polite, taking turns, paying attention, learning to listen, to have confidence and be considerate to others, just to name a few. Academics can be taught by any school, but Learning Experience teaches what a child will use everyday.
Mrs. Killips and her team are just that, a team. Everyone works together and it shows from administration to faculty. My child still remembers her teachers by name. All of the kids adore Mrs. Killips and the end of the year was the hardest when they had to say goodbye. My only problem with Learning Experience is that I wish there was program for grades 1 to 4. My daughter would be there now if they offered this.
I still from time to time visit the teachers and staff just to say hello, because they have made such a positive impact on my child. Every time we drive by this South East school with my child in the car, she says, “I want to go back to that school, I miss it.” I’d be lying if I didn’t have the same thoughts.”Zee Z.
