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.

Are you looking to register a student?

For 2020-2021, continuing students already in Immanuel Christian Elementary EEP, who will continue with a second year, the "Intent to Register" process begins January 27, 2020 (use this form). For new EEP students/families, "Intent to Register" opens February 3, 2020 (use these forms). Prospective families must apply for Society membership before they register in the Early Education program.

Children must be a minimum of 3 years old as of September 30 of the school year they are entering, for 2 half days per week (Mon/Wed morning or Tues/Thurs morning). Children who turn 3 between September 30 and December 31, 2020, may enter the Early Education Program after they turn 3 providing there is space available at that time. If a 3 year old child has an identified severe delay, they may access 4 mornings of programming.

Program will be available for children turning 4 by December 31/2020 either 2 half days per week (Mon/Wed morning or Tues/Thurs morning) or 4 half days per week (Monday through Thursday mornings).

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. 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 $185/month (4 – half days per week); and $95/month (2 – half days per week). These fees are paid via School Cash Online once school starts.

3. In addition to this, parents are required to pay a $40 registration fee (as per Lethbridge School Division Policy), in cash at the time of application to hold their spot. Please bring a copy of birth certificate and immunization records, as well as the $40 fee in cash, along with the completed application at the time of registration.
