Fribbit® & Eye See… Eye Learn® (ESEL) for Kindergarten Students
Eye See…Eye Learn (ESEL) is a children’s vision initiative funded by Alberta Health designed to ensure eye health and/or vision problems are not a factor in preventing children from reaching their maximum learning potential.
A comprehensive eye exam is recommended by your optometrist (or eye doctor) for kindergarten students. If the child requires a pair of glasses, they will receive them FREE of charge.
The Eye See…Eye Learn program was developed to raise awareness among parents of the importance of having their children’s eyes checked upon starting school. Children, who cannot see the board, focus on a picture or follow words in a book may struggle to achieve their full learning potential. Vision problems can also impact their hand-eye coordination for physical activities and even impact their social development. In fact, 80 percent of learning comes directly through vision.
The Eye See…Eye Learn program will help make sure our kindergarten students get the best start to learning.
