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.
The success of the ESEL program relies on the involvement of both parents and teachers. Each fall, kindergarten teachers send a parent information package home with each of their students. Parents are encouraged to book an appointment for their child to have their eyes examined. The program has gained endorsement from every public and separate and Francophone school division in Alberta.
Due to the generous donations of industry sponsors we are able to offer to kindergarten children from participating school divisions – one Free pair of eyeglasses if they are prescribed by an eye doctor.
