Ready to Learn! Kindergarten Readiness Program

Our program is offered in 12 afternoon sessions and is designed for children born in 2013, and registered in Sept 2017 kindergarten. Activities will enhance social, cognitive and language development skills as the children prepare to enter full day learning. Activities will strengthen small & large motor skills, premath (including graphing, seriating & sorting skills), as well as self-regulation, problem solving & questioning skills. There will be an emphasis on encouraging independence and building routines that are part of the kindergarten program.
