Our Programs: Fun and Education Beyond the Classroom

We offer three programs to the parents of Edinburgh Elementary School to extend their child’s day: our kindergarten-specific program, our regular program for children in grades 1 through 6, and our PED day program. All our programs offer early morning drop off from 7:00 a.m. to 7:35 a.m., and flexible pick-up times (5:00 p.m., 5:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.).

Our Kindergarten Program

Here at Edinburgh PSA we feel kindergarten is a pivotal point in a child’s development, both cognitively and socially. As such, we provide separate programming for the kindergarten class that focuses on age-appropriate activities, such as Handwriting With A Smile, book club, science & food experimenting, music, gym and much more. Our program also provides a safe and nurturing environment to support the transition to school, as well as opportunities to foster friendships outside of the classroom.

Special Days: Our Annual Events

Some of these in-house events include seasonal celebrations (e.g. Halloween), mini-theatre pieces written and performed by the children, and our end-of-year picnic. Expect an invitation to our annual show where students showcase the skills they have learned throughout the year as well!

Our optional PED day program is open to all students registered in our after-school program and features many excursions, with some in-house days as well. Activities offered in the past include pumpkin picking, visits to the cabane à sucre, Intermiel and Quinn Farm, trampolining, indoor gyms, Mount Royal and creative arts day.

All entrance fees are included in our program pricing. Space is limited, and registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
