Preschool Early Learning Program...

The Preschool Early Learning Program (Preschool ELP) helps prepare young children for school. Residents living in the Best Start Demonstration community of Lambton County who are 31 months to 4 years of age and are not yet eligible to enter junior kindergarten. Participation in Preschool ELP is free, space permitting.

Each PELP session is 2.5 hours in length.  Eligible children are entitled to up to 16 sessions per month.  Within these parameters, there is no cost to parents for this program. Families will complete the common PELP registration form with the service provider.

Through play, children work on acquiring age appropriate school readiness skills. The Preschool ELP is available ten months of the year from September to June. The program is also available in French.

Parents who want additional time at the child care centre can pay based on the child care operator's rate.
