Kindergarten

Kindergarten is a two-year experience that builds community and provides rich and inclusive learning for all children.

The Kindergarten program is based on four broad learning areas:

1. Belonging and Contributing 2. Self-Regulation and Well-Being 3. Demonstrating Literacy and Mathematics Behaviours 4. Problem Solving and Innovating

These areas focus on aspects of learning that are critical to your child’s development.  They also reflect the integrated way in which your child will learn through play and inquiry in our classrooms.  These four frames also align with the four foundations of early learning used in Ontario child care centres: belonging, engagement, expression and well-being.

Kindergarten

The program outlined in the 2016 Kindergarten Program Document is a child-centred, developmentally appropriate, integrated program of learning for four- and five-year-old children. The purpose of the program is to establish a strong foundation for learning in the early years, and to do so in a safe and caring, play-based environment that promotes the physical, social, emotional and cognitive development of all children (Kindergarten Program Document 2016, p. 9).
