The JSK program supports children in the kindergarten age category. Our program is filled with engaging activities based upon the children’s interests, but also allowing for free choice and down time from the busy day. We also offer PA Day full day care that at times includes field trips planned by our educators, with the children’s help. Parents have the option to sign up for these days ahead of time.
Children will be encouraged to pursue hobbies. They will be allowed unstructured time and privacy for reading, homework, or small social groups. Children will be encouraged to develop independence in life skills.
The age definition for the Kindergarten Program is four (4) to six (6) years of age.
The ratio of children to staff in the Kindergarten Program is thirteen (13) to one (1) during the main part of the day. During the first thirty (30) minutes after the opening and the last thirty (30) minutes prior to Kinderplace Childcare Centre Inc. closing the ratio can go to twenty (20) to one (1) to allow for staff shift changes (indoors only).
