Our Senior Kindergartens is a full time program, Monday through Friday.
Parents with five year olds recognize in them their insatiable appetite to learn. This is interest in life at its maximum and this is what we strive to maintain throughout the child’s education.
Through exploration, dynamic play, carefree creativity and academic instruction our enthusiastic learners develop skills that far exceed the provincial curriculum for Kindergarten. They learn to read, spell through dictation, develop early dictionary skills, create their first pieces as writers and practice essential research skills. They work on articulation of their ideas and practice being effective team members.
Senior Kindergarten students openly share their creativity, including creativity in problem solving. Opportunities to learn Music, French, Art and Computer Studies enhance their learning experience. Visits to our in-school library and frequent field trips to discover the community are a part of our student’s authentic educational experience at Progressive Academy.
Due to small class sizes our caring teachers are able to safeguard the student’s natural curiosity and challenge them to reach their full potential.
