The junior and senior kindergarten room consists of children who are of age to attend junior and senior kindergarten in a school. It is a full day kindergarten program. Parents who enroll their children in this programme currently have 2 options available for kindergarten:
1) Attend On site Saint John XXIII Catholic School
Children attending the Catholic School will be taken to their classrooms
2) Attend Gateway Public School
Children attending Gateway Public School have a short walk to and from the school accompanied by a staff from the day care
2) Attend French Emersion School
For this option, children travel by school bus to and from both schools
Junior and Senior kindergarten children enjoy a developmentally-appropriate programme filled with stimulating and challenging learning opportunities. Planned activities promote the development of skills and abilities in a variety of areas (i.e. cognition, creativity, language, social skills, gross motor, fine motor, etc.). After a nutritious morning snack, children depart for school. Upon their return to the center after school, they enjoy structured activities that build on the skills they have learnt in school.
