Kindergarten Program

Early Childhood Services (ECS) provide young children with the opportunity to participate as active learners within developmentally appropriate learning experiences and develop knowledge, skills and attitudes that lay the foundation for subsequent learning.

The Kindergarten learner expectations describe learnings that are appropriate for young children and are part of a learning pathway. Some children are already developing, or have developed, some of the learnings described in the Kindergarten Program Statement. Most children will achieve these learnings before they enter Grade 1. Others will continue to develop them during the primary school years. The Kindergarten program not only helps prepare children for entry into Grade 1, but also provides a foundation for later success.
