Kindergarten marks a new beginning for you and your child. It is a time of new discoveries and challenges as your child makes the transition from home to school. As parents and as educators we all want to make this transition as smooth as possible.
Early childhood is a significant period in human development. Independence, initiative, decision-making, creativity, the ability to learn, the development of language skills, the ability to relate to others and feelings of self worth are learned through play and interaction with peers and educators. What young children learn at this stage will have a major impact on future successful learning experiences. Kindergarten is the foundation of the school continuum.
The purpose of Kindergarten in the Limestone District is to provide learning experiences that reflect the Ontario Ministry of Education Kindergarten Program Document expectations. French Immersion and English Kindergarten programming provides opportunities that are developmentally appropriate, responsive to the diverse needs of young children, and which promote a positive attitude toward life long learning.
