Learning in Kindergarten

Teachers take into account children’s experiences and backgrounds to make sure learning programs meet their needs.

A focus in Kindergarten is on language and literacy and developing an early understanding of letters, sounds and rhyming words. They also learn that pictures can tell stories, how written words can be read, and how spoken sounds can be written down.

Mathematics and numeracy includes learning about numbers, shapes and counting. Measuring and the many different ways mathematics is used in our daily lives is also a key component of Kindergarten.

The social and emotional development of your child is a very important part of learning. Play teaches your child about making friends, sharing and taking turns, becoming problem solvers and creative thinkers, all while developing coordination and confidence. Play activities include cutting, painting, gluing, drawing, dressing up, sand play, climbing, storytelling, singing and dancing.
