The Kinder House
Our half-day Kindergarten program is designed for children who will transition into grade one in the public school system. With that in mind, our Kindergarten class will be very similar to the Kindergarten programs being offered in the Regina Public and Catholic school systems but with a more consistent, half-day, five day per week schedule. Our program also offers the added benefit of a smaller class size, giving more individual attention to building strong literacy and numeracy foundations for success in future grades. A half day Kindergarten schedule provides a consistent weekly routine for children as they learn to navigate the formal classroom setting. It also gives them a more evenly paced daily routine, which can be beneficial for families.
I will be teaching from resources that are similar to those used in the school systems so as to provide greater consistency for students as they transition to grade one the following year. With having a maximum of eight students, I feel that I will be better able to adapt to the learning level of my students and better meet their individual learning needs. As play is an integral part of the Kindergarten learning process, we will have daily opportunities for play both indoors and out, in addition to the more formal targeted daily lessons.
Kindergarten is a key foundational time for students. It is a critical stage in their early learning, and a time in which they develop the foundation for their future as life-long learners. Important seeds of learning are planted at this time. Kindergarten students deserve to have the best environment in order for those seeds to grow to their full potential.
