The Ministry of Education solicited input from parents and families of children who are deaf and hard of hearing for the development of a preschool program.
The funding for this new preschool program is provided by the Government of Canada through the Canada-Saskatchewan Early Learning and Child Care Agreement. Through that agreement, Saskatchewan is committed to creating early learning opportunities for children requiring intensive supports, including those who are deaf and hard of hearing.
The survey closed May 3, 2018.
On July 27, 2018, the Government of Saskatchewan announced that a new early learning pilot program for preschool-aged children who are deaf and hard of hearing, or connected to the Deaf and Hard of Hearing communities, would open in Regina and Saskatoon in fall 2018.
