Get a Head Start with Our Junior Kindergarten Advanced Program

Reading, Printing and Math Skills 

Our Advanced Program for children ages 3 to 5 is built around a junior kindergarten setting and will emphasize reading, printing, and math readiness skills. Our French curriculum is modified from the Calgary Board of Education kindergarten program.

Music 

In this program, we expand upon your child’s musicality with many songs in French, basic vocal training, and note recognition. We introduce the recorder, percussion instruments, cage bells, and everyone’s favourite – the kazoo!

Art 

Art projects are generally completed on a weekly basis to allow for each child’s own creative expression. Art is not pre-prepped, so the student is actually creating the piece on their own with only guidance from their instructor. This allows fine motor skills to develop naturally at their own pace.

Math and Science 

Our skilled early childhood educators also introduce your child to the world of mathematics and science. For math, we try to teach numbers not as a form of memorization but the actual concept of counting objects. For science, we have hands-on experiments like mixing colours, different weights for objects of the same size, etc. We allow these subjects, which can typically be more dry and uninteresting to your child, to now be viewed as fun and dynamic.

Movement 

A new addition to our program is our movement curriculum, which has been developed by a dance instructor at a local studio. As this is a 3-day a week program, we will rotate with each day of the week. Mondays will focus on basic dance instruction and learning to pair physical movement with musical inspiration. Wednesdays will focus on basic gymnastics and tumbling, which helps with balance development and dexterity. Fridays will focus on sports-based movement, and we will rotate between floor hockey and soccer for gross motor skills and ball placement games like basketball and bowling for hand to eye coordination.

Theatre and Puppetry 

Our Advanced Program has a section set aside for puppetry, where on certain days story time will be substituted for a puppet show. During our play time, the students will be allowed free access to the puppets so that they can develop their own imaginative play. There is a vast selection of costumes, train sets, and building material to develop their fine motor skills as well as project planning. Strict attention has been paid to ensure that all activities are non-aggressive in nature, as a children learn best when they are in a fun and positive environment.
