The Learning Bar is proud to be working with Manitoba Education and Early Childhood Learning to support their vision to ensure all children and students succeed, no matter where they live, their backgrounds, or their individual circumstances. The government will be using the Early Years Evaluation over the next three years to support the recommendations laid out in Manitoba’s K to 12 Education Action Plan to improve literacy and healthy childhood development outcomes.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with the government to achieve their vision,’ said Colette Wasson, CEO of The Learning Bar. “Working closely with school administrators and educators, we know that the student, classroom, school, and district level data will provide invaluable insight to inform individual student interventions, school planning, and provincial policy decisions.”

The Learning Bar is already working with many of the school districts in Manitoba, including the Frontier School Division, who have recognized the positive impact and success of the assessment on their Kindergarten students. We are excited that this three-year contract with Manitoba most importantly will give all children the opportunity to thrive.
