Education for Life

Kindergarten

Kindergarten is an exciting new stage in your child’s life! At Cambridge Christian School we are pleased to offer both part-time and full-time Kindergarten options to suit your family’s needs. 

 

 

Our Kindergarten Programs focus on developing childrens' academic and social skills as they begin their school journey. Through many varied activities our goal is to prepare them for the structure and learning of Grade 1.

The Junior Kindergarten Program

 

At Cambridge Christian School our Junior Kindergarten program is on Monday, Wednesday and Friday with an optional five day program. "Grow and Go" is our Tuesday and Thursday JK program. During our daily lessons we take time to pray and discuss the world that God has created.  We use a program called Jolly Phonics where the students learn the alphabet sounds one letter a week in order of frequency.  In addition to our academics, we learn to get along with each other, be independent, respect others' property and above all, love the way that Jesus loved.

The Senior Kindergarten Program

Our Senior Kindergarten program is on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, with an optional five day program. "Grow and Go" is run on Tuesday and Thursday for SK students and this program builds on the students’ confidence and skills in varying areas.  The students continue to learn through play with many different center activities that include dramatic play, math, reading, writing, music and art centers.  We continue to use the Jolly Phonics curriculum and cover 42 sounds which provide the basics of literacy skills. We conduct a diagnostic service at the Senior Kindergarten level called “Search and Teach” which assists in the early identification of students who may need educational assistance.   Each day we have devotions, a morning message and a Bible class which helps us learn more about God and our place in His world.  Young children have a great capacity for learning and our Kindergarten program opens new experiences and gives them the ability to grow in knowledge and personal development.

Testimonial

We have 2 daughters attending preschool this year and they love it! Renee is friendly & engaging and made them feel comfortable right away. She provides creative activities related to a letter of the week and Bible stories, and the girls love doing the crafts available. One of their favourite things is a sensory bin filled with different items each week. This program is helping prepare our daughters for the structure of school, while also increasing their confidence in learning and being part of a class. It has been a wonderful experience for all of us!
