LCDS Preschool & Kindergarten (formerly known as Londonderry Child Development Society) is a not-for-profit, parent cooperative that offers Preschool, Junior Kindergarten, and Kindergarten programs in North Edmonton.
LCDS Preschool & Kindergarten
Preschool classes are available to kids 3-4 years old for 2-4/day a week and parents love the option of being able to select the days of the week that their child attends (pending availability). There is also a Junior Kindergarten program that is offered for children that don’t meet the age requirement for Kindergarten but are looking for a more academically challenging program.
The Kindergarten program offered is a traditional kindergarten program that is available for those that are looking for a different option instead of a k-6 school. Classes are 5 days a week with options for morning and afternoon. Kindergarten fees are also covered as they would be in other kindergarten classes.
One of the things that LCDS Preschool & Kindergarten prides itself in is that they offer low ratio classrooms which are taught by a teacher with a Bachelor’s Degree in Education as well as trained Educational Assistants. There is a maximum of 7 Kindergarten students enrolled in each class with a maximum of 17 students/day/class.
