DKK is a member of AEGBEE (Association for English-German Bilingual Education of Edmonton) and continue to work together to further the Association’s goal of German education for children from age three to grade 12.
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.
In addition to the COVID-specific Health Orders, DKK is bound by the Child Care Licensing Act and regulations, all other public health measures and specifically AHS guidelines for Preschools.
DKK also follows additional expectations stipulated by the schools, the Edmonton Public School Board and the German Canadian Cultural Association Edmonton.
All DKK locations follow the EPSB School Division Calendar, and accordingly, there will be no class on days when public schools are closed. You can find the EPSB calendar at the following link:
DKK is fortunate to have the support of many individuals, groups and agencies.
We would like to acknowledge the generous donations received from 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.
