About DKK Playschool
Die Kleine Kinderschule (”DKK”) is a registered non-profit society registered under the Alberta Societies Act.
DKK is a member of AEGBEE (Association for English-German Bilingual Education of Edmonton) and many of our students graduate to the German Bilingual Kindergarten and school programs offered through Edmonton Public Schools. Although classroom space is leased from the Edmonton Public School Board, DKK is not affiliated with the Edmonton Public Schools. The DKK Executive Board consists of parent volunteers who are elected at the Annual General Meeting in May.
DKK is a member of the GCAA (German Canadian Association of Alberta) as we value the importance and value in supporting and connecting with other German language and cultural groups in the Edmonton and surrounding areas.
DKK is given a license to operate by Alberta Social Services and is recertified by Social Services on a yearly basis. The safety and well-being of the children attending DKK is our first priority. All teachers and teaching assistants have received first aid training.
DKK is funded primarily by monthly fees supplemented by fundraising (see Fees section for more information). We always appreciate donations of time, money, toys and equipment.
DKK is approved to participate in the Stay at Home Parent Subsidy Program. For more information about this program visit the Child Care Services website at www.child.gov.ab.ca/childcaresubsidy or call 780-427-0444. Please note: The final decision for approval of applications is made ONLY by Child & Family Services. DKK and its Executive have no decision in the approval or rejection of submitted applications.
DKK is fortunate to have the support of many individuals, groups and agencies.
We would like to acknowledge the generous donations received from Association for English-German Bilingual Education of Edmonton (AEGBEE), the German Canadian Cultural Association and the Männerchor Liederkranz. These funds allow DKK to continue to provide quality bilingual preschool education to in three Edmonton locations. Thank you for your kindness.
