Preschool (4-5)

Fun is the name of the game in our programs for preschoolers. All of our programs focus on kids learning in fun, creative environments. Whether it’s a beginner’s swim class or one of our creative Kids ‘R’ Us Programs, the JCC has programs tailored for the different needs of parents with young children.

KidStart Literacy 3-5y 
The goal of the program is to provide a quality early learning program that inspires children to create, discover, and achieve. Best practise does more than teach children to count and say the alphabet. Your children will have the opportunity to learn and develop through play and exploration to gain the necessary skills for kindergarten readiness. This will be obtained using the Handwriting with Out Tears, Firm Foundations Early Literacy Teaching and Learning, Safe Spaces, as well as Peaceful Classroom curriculums. Your child will learn how to self regulate basic emotions and how to deal with them appropriately. To learn to treat other with respect and gentleness, to be generous and to help when possible. The daily schedule will provide a balance of structured and unstructured times. The program runs full year from September 2018 to June 2019 and follows the CBE calendar.
