SD60 has two highly skilled and caring licensed Early Childhood Educators (ECE) on staff:

  • Lana Scott-Moncrieff – Duncan Cran Elementary 250.787.0417
  • Pamela Essensa – Robert Ogilvie Elementary 250.785.3704

Our curriculum is based on collaboration between community ECEs and Kindergarten teachers to determine what skills children need for success both inside and outside of the classroom.   Here’s what we’ve learned from research about young children’s academic and social success:

  • desire and ability to communicate with others
  • physical independence
  • curiosity and interest in learning
  • caring for ourselves, for others and for our environment
  • self-confidence
