Kindergarten is an investment in our future. The Near North District School Board is pleased to offer a two year Kindergarten program.
Establishing a strong foundation in the early years will give Ontario’s four- and five-year-olds a stronger start with their learning. It will help improve their reading, writing and math skills, provide a smoother transition to Grade 1 and help increase their success in school and beyond.
We are very excited to welcome your child to our schools in September. Our team of educators provide an excellent kindergarten program that will motivate your child to be his or her best!
In the Spring, Near North families will receive an invitation for a “Welcome to Kindergarten” session where you and your child will participate in playful experiences together with educators and early learning community partners as you become familiar your school community and the Kindergarten Program. These hands-on experiences are supported with a package full of books, crayons, magnetic letters and numbers and other learning materials for you and your child to enjoy together beyond the orientation session.
In Near North District School Board’s Early Learning Kindergarten an average of 26 JK/SK students attend all day, everyday with one teacher. and one Early Childhood Educator (ECE). Classrooms with under 16 children will only be staffed with one teacher.
