Our Full-Day Kindergarten Program is an all day, every day program for students who are four and five years of age. The program builds strong foundations for our youngest learners and prepares them for the primary school years.

Our Kindergarten classrooms are safe, bright and exciting places for children to learn with both a qualified classroom teacher and a certified early childhood educator (ECE) in the room, allowing for more personalized attention for each student. The teacher and ECE work as a team and students benefit from both of their expertise.

The learning in our classrooms is strength based and student-driven. Our caring and supportive Kindergarten educators foster children’s natural curiosity, often allowing students to direct the learning in their areas of interest using authentic and hands-on learning opportunities.
