Our Kindergarten program offers a learning environment that provides each child with the basis for experiencing success and developing personally. The activities help each student gain a solid foundation for Grade 1 and future learning.

In order to meet the individual and group social and academic needs, daily routines, learning centres (organized activities, purposeful play), field trips, etc. are intended to provide a "hands-on" experience in order for the child to learn more about themselves and the world around them.

Staff Meetings & Early Dismissal

Kindergarten children do not attend school on staff meeting days, which fall on the first Wednesday of each month except September. Kindergarten children also do not attend school on the early dismissal days preceding winter break (in December) and spring break (in March).
