TO:                  All Parents of Children receiving Program Unit or Mild/Moderate Funding

                        from Alberta Education’s Early Learning Branch


FROM:             Donna Rottmann, Treasurer


All children registered with Alberta Education that live greater 2.4 kilometers from their school are eligible to receive a Transportation Allowance. The Transportation Grant payments will be made at the end of June 2020. The calculation will be based on the number of months for which your child received therapy sessions. We do not base payments on attendance records unless the child is absent for one month or more. Since Foothills Creative Beginnings does not provide transportation, this allowance will be paid directly to you and only you, as parents/legal guardians.


If you wish to receive the Transportation Grant, please completely fill in and sign the the below form or download it here. If you do not wish to receive this grant, please fill in the short form here (Decline), so worded. The latter allows us to remove your child’s name from the Transportation Grant Request Form that is to be forwarded to Alberta Education. To issue payments, we require your signature on an agreement that states requirements for the child and also removes all liability from Alberta Education and Foothills Creative Beginnings. If your form is not received prior to our deadline we cannot apply for this grant, and therefore you will not be eligible for the Transportation Allowance.

Deadline: October 16, 2019

The completed form may be also returned to your child’s classroom teacher if your child attends Foothills Creative Beginnings. If your child is not attending Foothills Creative Beginnings please fax the completed form to 403-374-2068 or email the completed form to

Many thanks,

Donna Rottmann
