Can you tell me more about the Kindergarten Program?

The Kindergarten program is a play-based educational program full of exploration, discovery and learning about the world.  Children learn through play, and the kindergarten curriculum is designed to engage them in this learning, through their natural curiosity, imagination and creativity.  You can access the complete Kindergarten curriculum on the Ministry of Education website.

Many of our schools also offer a French Immersion program.  The list of schools which currently offer French can be found on the French as a Second Language page.
