Welcome to Kindergarten at Jennie Elliott School 

Kindergarten is the start of an exciting adventure for your child. Kindergarten students are curious and eager to learn; the kindergarten program at Jennie Elliott School fosters students in learning experiences where they are engaged, challenged, and supported. Through responsive programming, students’ needs, learning styles, and interests are honoured. We are committed to providing authentic and experiential opportunities for beginning learners to practice and develop the skills for learning and life. All teachers at Jennie Elliott School are dedicated to working towards success for each student through the personalization of learning with the goal of our students becoming capable, competent lifelong learners.
