1. Why 1/2 Day Kindergarten?
Our school provides half-day kindergarten every day because it is better for kids!
As parents, we know that every day, consistent routines are best for kids and the best educational environments are no different. Lack of a daily routine causes anxiety and feelings of insecurity in children. Lack of daily, consistent learning routines means that children miss out on optimal learning when there are gaps in the schedule that occur on a regular basis.
Kindergarten is one of the most significant transition times in a child’s school career. Everyday Kindergarten better prepares children academically, socially and emotionally. Everyday kindergarten provides consistent learning so students can achieve an excellent foundation of literacy, numeracy & social skills more readily. Our results show it! 40% of our students are EXCEEDING literacy benchmarks & everyday Kindergarten is a huge part of that success for students. This also allows for outside services (speech & language, etc.) to have the opportunity to program & work with students often.
We are a PreK - Grade 3 child-centred campus that specializes in this age group. Our specialized programming is not based on older student schedules, timetabling or curriculum. It is built especially for your child’s development at this age!
