Your child will engage in the kind of learning I love most:
playing! Play-based learning in Ontario is designed to support
your child’s natural learning by focusing on four key areas:
In Kindergarten, students really begin to explore where they fit into the world and their role as community members.
Students matter as individuals. Learning in Kindergarten helps them to become more self-aware, and understand their own thinking and feelings.
Students show literacy with the language, pictures, and materials they use to express themselves. Using numbers and patterns during play strengthens their developing mathematics skills.
Kindergarten students begin to make sense of their world by asking questions, solving problems, and engaging in creative play.
Our School Locator tool will tell you
where your child's home school is.
