Learning in Kindergarten

In Kindergarten, your child will have many opportunities to learn, build skills, develop social relationships and become familiar with the routines of school. The Kindergarten program includes six learning areas: language, math, science and technology, personal and social development, health and physical activity and the arts.

Children will explore learning through reading, writing, drama, visual arts, science and physical activity. Self-regulation skills such as making choices, developing resilience and engaging in social interactions are also supported in the Kindergarten program. Students will work with materials such as sand, water, blocks and construction materials and will learn and practice positive character attributes, which support them in reaching their full potential.

You will receive communication about your child’s development in many ways throughout the school year. During parent-teacher interviews and on report cards, the teacher will share information about your child’s progress and achievement. It is also important for you to share information about your child with the teacher. So, if you have questions or concerns, please contact staff at the school.
