Primary Program – For our students in Kindergarten to Grade 3, each of our schools offers a unique configuration to meet the needs of their children and community. Our primary learning environments are exciting places to be – creative, enthusiastic children and professional, caring adults working together to develop a love for learning, focussed on well being and belonging, exploration and creativity, social responsibility and diversity and foundational skills in language and literacies.
Healthy Beginnings – This is a mom/tots program sponsored by the Nuxalk Nation that the District often partners with on initiatives such as providing speech & language services to the valley.
