Junior Kindergarten

About Our Junior Kindergarten Programs

  • Taught by qualified early childhood educators.
  • Programs run from September through June.
  • Classes are three hours in length.
  • We offer two-day and three-day per week programs.
  • Programs are available in both English and French Immersion.
  • We offer programs in several of our public schools in Okotoks and High River & Area (classes are subject to a minimum enrollment of 12 students per class)
  • Children have access to school facilities and programs such as the library, gymnasium, school-based  assemblies and buddy reading programs, field trips and cultural events.
  • Play-based activities that encourage children to explore, create and problem-solve.
  • Focus on developing positive personal and social skills required for learning.
  • Curriculum that aligns with the Early Learning and Child Care Curriculum Framework for Alberta.
  • Developmentally appropriate practices in accordance with the International Reading Association and the National Association for the Education of Young Children.
  • We value and require monthly participation/volunteering by parents/guardians to increase awareness of the skills your child is learning to help you reinforce these skills at home.

 

 

Program Overview

Our Junior Kindergarten programs utilize the Curriculum Framework for Early Learning and Child Care in Alberta. This framework guides the decisions made by the Early Childhood Educator as they consider broad-based goals for early learning in the development of daily routines, learning experiences and environments, and interactions with each child and family. The learning environment is attentive to all aspects of children’s growth and abilities. For example, the broad-based goals for children’s development include:

  • well-being (physical health, emotional health, a sense of belonging and positive identities);
  • communication and literacy skills (vocabulary, language, early literacy and numeracy);
  • diversity and social responsibility (making choices and decisions, understanding other points of view, supporting those who need help, appreciating their own uniqueness and that of others.
  • play and playfulness (imagination and creativity, playful exploration and problem solving)

More specifically, in Junior Kindergarten young children learn to:

  • get along with others;
  • express their thoughts and feelings;
  • control their bodies;
  • regulate their own behavior;
  • wait, share, and take turns;
  • understand the point of view of others;
  • ask and answer questions; and
  • follow directions.
