OVERVIEW OF KINDERGARTEN

In our kindergarten program, we provide a bridge between the magical, creative playfulness of preschool and the emerging cognitive development of the elementary years.

The Career Academy’s kindergarten program incorporates the very best child- centred educational approaches; including Montessori and Canadian Curriculum without being constrained by any one of them. Our program emphasizes creative, imaginative play and experiential learning to develop physical dexterity, early literacy, math skills, problem-solving abilities, oriented learning and acquisition of knowledge, concepts and skills.

Our learning environment encourages the development of important social, emotional and personal skills such as listening, identifying and communicating needs, cooperation, confidence, self-reliance and empathy.
