Ready, Set, Learn (RSL) is an early learning initiative sponsored by the Ministry of Education. This initiative is intended for families of 3-5 year old aged children to develop positive connections with the school system and with participating community agencies. In alignment with the province’s Early Learning Framework, Ready, Set, Learn aims to provide pre-Kindergarten children with opportunities to learn more about their world in an age-appropriate way.

Gifts and Gatherings

The Langley School District is pleased to offer Gifts and Gatherings which is a new series of early learning opportunities as part of Ready, Set, Learn. These sessions are led by Early Childhood Educator, Sam Collie.

It is important to celebrate every child for their uniqueness and strengths. Gifts and Gatherings is a program that embraces this celebration! Participants will have the opportunity to engage in playful activities designed for all ages.

Many people have an important role in raising a child. Adults will gain skills and knowledge to support children beyond the session. Any family member or caregiver is welcome to participate along with children ages 0-5 years old. This program is open to all families and at no-cost. Families can attend any session across the District.

If you have any questions about the program, please email Amanda Slade, District Teacher, Early Years: aslade@sd35.bc.ca.

Please see below for times and locations.

Sessions are designed as Drop-In Sessions and open to all families.  Spaces are limited and filled on a first come first-served basis and run from 1:00pm-2:00pm for all sessions. If you have any questions about the schedule, please contact Early Childhood Educator Sam Collie, scollie@sd35.bc.ca.
