The Senior Room is a dynamic, lively room that offers a variety of activities to prepare your child for Junior Kindergarten. Literacy activities are offered both on an individual basis, (book boxes, author studies, rebus stories at the easel and the library) and as a group. Receptive and expressive language are encouraged through activities during our daily circle time. Numeracy development continues with age appropriate activities being offered at various stations throughout the room. The senior room also offers a dramatic play area, a science nook, and a variety of toys and activities which children are free to choose. A supervised creative art station reflecting our theme of the week is also offered on a daily basis. Senior Preschool – Ratio 1 teacher to 8 seniors
Summer has arrived and we couldn’t be happier! Just a reminder that each child should have a summer hat at school every day. We spend a lot of time in the yard throughout the summer and we want to keep the children protected.
Along with summer comes summer holidays! We have put a calendar up outside our classroom, if you and your child will be taking some holidays could you please fill in the days: as this will help us to staff accordingly.
