What do we learn in Kindergarten?
Early Literacy A is for apple: Your child will begin to understand that letters have sounds and that together those sounds form words and carry meaning.
Early Numeracy Learning numbers and solving problems with patterns: Your child will represent and describe quantities of things up to 10.
Citizenship & Identity: I am unique and I belong! Your child will develop a strong sense of identity, self-esteem and belonging by exploring their environment and sharing stories.
Environment & Community Awareness: What do I see, smell and hear in my community? How do I shape the environment? Kindergarten children explore materials, build structures and use technology to explore, investigate and describe their world.
Personal & Social Responsibility: I know how to act and how to work and play with others. Kindergarten children develop ways to express their feelings positively and to show respect and care for others.
Physical Skills & Well-Being:A healthy body is part of a healthy life. Your child will begin to develop a love for physical activity through movement, games, and activities.
Creative Expression: Beauty is in the eye of the beholder! Drama, art, music, and dance give your child ways to express their ideas and feelings, to bring their imagination to life and to see their creativity in a variety of forms.
Our Kindergarten Programs provide learning experiences that meet the developmental needs of all children. Children move through similar stages, but with their own pattern and at their own rate of development and learning. When children enter the Kindergarten Program there may be as much as a year's difference in age between the oldest and the youngest — one-fifth of their lifetime!
The learning expectations of the kindergarten program are adapted and modified to meet the needs of each child.
