The Early Education Program at Immanuel Christian Elementary School offers vibrant, play-based learning where our youngest students can grow and develop in a Christian environment! This program offers current ICS parents an opportunity to have their Early Education Program (EEP) age children attend the same school as their siblings. It also gives parents the opportunity to have continuity of programming and location for their children, Early Education age through elementary school years.

Check out the brochure to learn more and meet the staff!

Fee Information

1. New families need to be accepted as ICS Society Members before they can enroll children in ICES Early Education Program (same as with registration for other grades). There is an annual Society Membership fee of $250 (plus $100 non-refundable Society application fee). The Society fee is something that will already be paid if parents have students in other grades at Immanuel Christian Schools - it is incorporated into full school fees. If you are a new family, the $250 membership fee will be invoiced to you and can be paid via cash, cheque, or e-transfers; it can be divided up into several payments. 

2. Monthly program fees are $200/month (4 – half days per week). These fees are paid via Lethbridge School Division once school starts.

3. In addition to this, parents are required to pay a $40 registration fee (as per Lethbridge School Division Policy) at the time of application. Please provide a copy of birth certificate and the $40 registration fee, along with the completed application at the time of registration.
