Educating and Learning Opportunities
As the world continues to evolve and education standards continue to rise, the need to keep competitive is crucial. The Municipality of Greenstone has this competitive drive. Their vast selection of educational opportunities is evidence of this.
Greenstone offers three municipal daycares and one private daycare with a variety of learning programs to choose for children 18 months to pre-school age.
The Municipality also supports five school boards consisting of nine elementary schools, and two high schools which are available to school-age children. Within the elementary schools, residents have the ability to enroll their children in public, as well as French or English speaking separate schools. The secondary school system allows for students to attend a French or English high school.
For those who are interested in continuing or enhancing their education, the option has been made available. With the help from our Confederation College campus, a variety of options are available including:
- print-based and on-line courses
- training / apprenticeship programs
- audio and video conference capabilities
- on-site courses
These offerings allow individuals to gain the confidence and knowledge to compete in today’s labour force as well as enhancing personal interests.
As educational demands increase to keep pace with the ever-growing technological advances, so will the Municipality of Greenstone’s education system.
