Is Your Child Ready For School?
We know that Early Childhood Education plays a key role in getting your children ready for school. It helps develop some of the qualities they need to make the most of their school years. These include skills such as language, social skills, emotional maturity, physical health, and the ability to express ideas. Children who are ready for school tend to have good language skills , are eager to learn and bring positive attitudes into the classroom.
Children who are five years old before January 1, 2017 are eligible to register for Kindergarten. Each school in the St. James- Assiniboia School Division is hosting an Information Evening to provide you with an opportunity to meet the teachers and learn more about school programs. For a complete list of the dates and times for the information sessions please visit the St James – Assiniboia School Division website at www.sjsd.net or see the list that is posted next to the parent whiteboard outside of your child’s classroom.
Please Note: Discovery Children’s Centre is not responsible for registering your child for kindergarten or bussing arrangements. These arrangements must be made by you the parents. We would appreciate knowing which school you have selected for your child. Please leave this information with your child’s teacher. Discovery Children’s Centre will not accept Kindergarten children in our program if they require child care services from 9:00-11:30am. If your Kindergarten child will attend only a half day Kindergarten program – you must have your child registered for an AM kindergarten a class and they can be with us in the afternoon.
