Kindergarten Readiness Program/Junior Kindergarten
Early Childhood Development is a priority for us. The first five years of a child’s life are the most critical for healthy, mental, physical and social development. Junior Kindergarten/Kindergarten builds on these principles through a distinct play-based curriculum designed to foster a sense of identity, conversation and communication, collaboration and teamwork, problem-solving and decision making, creativity and innovation, and the basics of reading, writing, and mathematics. Children are in a group with their peers and learn, through playing, how to make friends, express themselves, explore, and connect their experiences in an environment focused on stimulating curiosity and helping them develop skills, interests and healthy behaviors.
The Director of Wee Daycare originally developed over 12 years a successful Preschool Program in Tsawwassen, with that knowledge she has developed a Daycare Plus/Junior Kindergarten Program. Our centre incorporates a full kindergarten readiness program, many extracurricular activities and a warm nurturing environment where each individual child's needs are met.
Included in the day is our Kindergarten Readiness from 9:30-11:30 am.
During this time we do circle time (theme-based), an art(craft) activity, and offer activities and centers that encourage math readiness, science exploration, fine motor, and pre-printing development.
