The junior kindergarten program comprises of education in early literacy, early numeracy, weather, time, learning through play and other structured modules.
This program is for students who will be 3 years and 8 months before September 1st of a given year. Early learning experiences are crucial to the future well-being of children, and establish the foundation for the acquisition of knowledge and skills that will affect later learning and behaviour. Children thrive within classrooms that meet their physical and developmental needs and that provide a secure, respectful, and nurturing environment.
The program has similar structure to a kindergarten program offered at public and private schools. It includes early literacy, early numeracy, citizenship and identity, homework to reinforce concepts introduced in class, learning through play, environmental awareness, development of gross and fine motor skills and much more. This program graduates children into kindergarten very well prepared to excel in the next year and develop academic and social skills that will serve them indefinitely.
