JUNIOR KINDERGARTEN PROGRAM

Monday, Wednesday & Friday Mornings & Afternoons 9-1130am & 1230-3pm

Sept 2017-June 2018   am class-4 spots available     pm class-14 spots available

This program will focus on enhancing children's skills in all areas of children's development – Social, Emotional, Cognitive, Physical and Creative.

The philosophy for this program is still free-play based, but more activities will be added to stimulate the children's own natural curiosity, and thereby facilitate a natural process of learning.

A wide variety of activities will be provided, including, but not limited to: building construction, language, gross motor, fine motor, creative, basic math and science, and music.

Hands-on science, math and language activities will be provided daily, with a balance of class discussion pertaining to their interests and levels of understanding.

Focus will be put on language and pre-reading skills, and development of fine motor skills in readiness for printing. We will also focus on Emotional and Social skills, helping the children to learn all about themselves, individually and within the group, as well as improving their social awareness.

As the year advances, the children will have greater choices of curriculum activities, as well as longer amounts of group discussion time, pertaining to their interests and levels of understanding. Pre reading and math skills will be enhanced by lots of practice with calendar, letters of the week, fun work sheets and positive interactions with teachers.
