Our programming provides each child with special needs an opportunity to grow and develop to their optimum potential within their family, community and early childhood settings. I’m for Kids Team forms Preschool Partnerships with over 70 private preschools throughout Calgary and surrounding areas. We offer training to the partnering preschool staff.
It's because of Wendy’s approach to education, her honesty, openness and her willingness
to assist families in any way possible that “I’m for Kids Team” has flourished.
The goal of an inclusive education system is to provide all children with the most appropriate learning environments and opportunities for them to best achieve their potential. Inclusion is about ensuring that each child belongs and receives a quality education/experience. An inclusive education system is best realized when leadership is shared between school, home and family. Preschools reflect the attitudes, beliefs and health of the communities they serve and must be equipped to reflect inclusive practice.
Through play children explore their world, discover how to get along with others, test their skills and muscles, try out new ideas, and feel competent enough to try different activities (i.e. we utilize a multisensory teaching model to enhance learning). Curiosity, Self-esteem, Language, Problem Solving, Cooperation, Endurance are just a few of the many kinds of learning involved in play. Adults can encourage children to play in ways that are valuable by setting the stage for them and, when appropriate, extending the children’s ideas during play.
We are passionate about helping all families with young children with developmental needs.
We're always looking for passionate individuals experienced with young children.
Our team provides an Early Intervention Program to meet the identified special needs of children. We have a complete team of professionals to provide programming strategies in a play-based and community-based preschool program.

His teacher, aide, and Student Services teacher called him"a poster child for Early Intervention" and were all giving examples of how they've seen him use strategies that he's been taught. Plus, the school uses The Zones of Regulation, and he essentially taught it all to the class :)
Anyway, I just wanted to say thank you to you all for working so hard with Aaron, and doing so much to help him, over the past couple of years! It's paying off and we appreciate all you do!

I know I would not be where I am today - without you.

We wouldn't be where we are today without all of you, and are SO grateful. The work you all do is so important. It's too bad that you often don't get to see the results of all that hard work, since kids move on after age 6.
