Starting school can be very exciting but at the same time stressful for some. We want to make starting school an enjoyable process for your little one. One filled with successful and happy experiences.
Our Kindergarten program is designed to prepare your little one for the elementary years ahead. We work on all subjects such as English, Math, Islamic Studies, Science, Art, and Gym. All while giving them a balanced day of learning and play.
The day begins with morning entry and greeting, along with circle time. All of our friends are encouraged to participate, as this is a great time to share thoughts, opinions, experiences, and stories to the whole group.
We structure our mornings with Language and Math. In these classes the children are following teacher directed instructions, and learning is enforced with the use of reading and writing. In the afternoons we transition into learning through exploration, play and social interactions. Outdoor time is an essential component of our program. Fresh minds lead to healthy learning!
In Islamic studies our children learn Qaida, Surahs, Duas, and listen to stories of the Prophets. They enjoy listening to and signing nasheeds, as well as, Quran throughout the day.
Our students have gym twice a week, and do Creative Arts regularly. This includes; colouring, cutting and pasting, painting, and using different materials to engage creatively.
During play time our students have plenty of options. From dressing up as chefs at our play kitchen, or playing with educational puzzles, this time is designed to teach students to learn through play and to reinforce social skills.
All children are required to bring healthy snacks and lunches, along with a water bottle to keep their tummies full throughout the day. We have one snack period and one lunch period.
As part of the school, the kindergarten children participate in presenting at assemblies, attend school field trips, bake sales and school lunches, and lots more fun activities.
Every day in Kindergarten is a new adventure! We look forward to meeting your shining stars.
