Programmes
Kindershcool Toddler Class Room 1

Toddler - age in Sept: 18 months to 30 months
Teacher/Student Ratio 1:5 (3 teachers to 15 students)

In our toddler room we encourage and motivate children to begin doing for themselves what they are able to do (i.e. putting on coats, foot wear, zippers, hanging up coats, tidying up toys). Our progamme offers respectful and concrete methods to help children and parents through separation  anxiey and into socialization with others in a most respectful and encouraging environment.

 
Kinderschool Nursery Class Room 2

Nursery - age in Sept: 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 years
Teacher/Student Ratio 1:8 (2 teachers to 16 students)

In our nursery room we offer a warm and welcoming environment where children are encouraged to play with and establish their own relationships with friends independent of adult direction. Children are taught to “speak up” and verbalize their feelings and to “think for themselves". Teachers focus only on a child’s strengths and in doing so children are made to feel that they are capable, they count, have courage and know how to connect with others.

 
Kinderschool Pre-school Class Room 3
Morning

Preschool - age in Sept: 3 1/2 to 6 years
Teacher/Student Ratio 1:8 (3 teachers to 24 students)

In our pre-school room we give children decision making powers relative to their level of experience as they learn to assume more responsibility for themselves and their feelings. Children delight in having opinions, problem solving skills and jobs within their classroom that encourage a sense of belonging, self confidence and feelings of worth as they learn to recognize the needs of others.

 
Kinderschool Kindergarten Class Room 3
Afternoon

Kindergarten JK/SK - age in Sept: 4 to 6 years
HALF AND FULL DAY AVAILABLE Teacher/Student Ratio 1:8 (3 teachers to 24 students)

In our kindergarten room children are provided opportunities to explore their potentialities, to regard all with respect and learn how to work to gain it. Our programme focuses on social and emotional growth, the foundation for intellectual learning and democratic living. Academic excellence (comprehension and retention) happens when the student experiences a feeling of belonging in an emotionally secure community setting.

 
Music Class Music



Kinderschool is fortunate to have an in-house music programme offering many exciting learning opportunities. Nyanna, our music teacher, uses traditional as well as original songs to introduce your child to a lifetime love of music as everyone is encouraged to sing along, dance along, play along, move, clap, listen, smile and best of all, have fun.


Music Class Yoga



When children learn yoga at an early age it encourages self-esteem and body awareness with a physical activity that's non-competitive. Fostering cooperation and compassion - instead of opposition - is a great gift to give our children. Physically, yoga enhances flexibility, strength, coordination, and body awareness. Yoga brings that marvelous inner light (that all children have) to the surface. Our yoga instructor, Heather, teaches either Tuesday or Wednesdays every week.

Kinderschool Camp Summer
Camp
Kinderschool offers a fully licensed, wonderful summer experience for your young camper, ages 18 months to 6 years on our beautiful "green acres" on Bayview. Camp sessions run Monday to Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in July and August. A catered lunch is included. Research supports summer camp activity as a means of contributing and retaining brain activity, and encourages play and participation with friends.

Mission Statement:

At Kinderschool we believe nurturing a child’s joy of play leads to increased self-confidence, respect for oneself and others, co-operation, appreciation of effort not end result, and value of participation and contribution as an equal in the group. We focus on the underlying motivation of behaviour, not the behaviour itself.

Our Results:

When children have a feeling of belonging there is no need for a child to act out. Without misbehavior much time is saved for learning and although we focus on play, the relaxed atmosphere promotes much comprehension and retention of cognitive materials. After over 50 years, most of our students attend post secondary education and lead happy, useful lives. We have even welcomed some of “their” children to learn and grow within our Kinderschool community.
