Since September 2005, kcs has been offering Jr. Kindergarten programs. Children who are 4 years old learn together in an enriched, integrated setting.
The programs runs as follows:
Tuesday/Thursday 9:00am - 11:30am
In preparation for Kindergarten, the program focuses on a number of key skill areas which are supported by speech, occupational and physical therapists and the kcs Early Intervention team, namely:
Reading readiness via visual and auditory discrimination activities
Math readiness with counting, graphing and patterning skills
Arts and crafts through exploration of a variety of media
Music and drama experiences
Jr. Kindergarten is for children with previous experience in an early learning program while Pre-Kindergarten is for children identified by developmental screening to be gifted or to have mild to moderate delays.
