The Kindergarten program is a specialized developmental program utilizing play, manipulation of concrete materials, learning centres and small and large group work. These elements provide opportunities for children to develop reading skills, numerical skills and problem-solving skills, to express themselves creatively, and to develop a positive view of themselves and a comfortable relationship with others.

The Kindergarten program statement provides learner expectations in seven learning areas:

  1. Early Literacy
  2. Early Numeracy
  3. Citizenship and Identity
  4. Environment and Community Awareness
  5. Personal and Social Responsibility
  6. Physical Skills and Well-being
  7. Creative Expression

Young children learn in an integrated way and much of their learning will be accomplished through “play” at centers, social interaction with others and during group time. Throughout the day there will be a balance of teacher-directed and child-initiated learning. Students will be given opportunities to interact and converse with others, and will learn to work and play cooperatively. Students will become familiar with reading and writing processes through the use of predictable books, shared reading, and a variety of early reading and writing activities. Manipulatives and games will lay the foundation for Math basics. We will provide an environment that encourages risk-taking and supports success.

Our Kindergarten Hours

The Kindergarten program is a half-day program from Monday through to Friday. The Kindergarten program consists of 475 hours of instructional time. The official hours for kindergarten are 8:25 – 11:10 am. The students will enter at the east parking lot doors at 8:25 each morning.

What’s the best way to know how something works? … take it apart and look inside. Our 8s had the chance to dissect sheep and horse eyes to see how each part work together. #yycbe #wearecbe #edchat #sciencechat

Today our 9s explored indigenous ways of knowing in geometry. We used Math in a Cultural Context to learn how we can make circles using only our knuckle and a pair of scissors. #yycbe #wearecbe #mathchat #edchat @UsihChristopher RT #IndigenousPeoplesDay

Rosedale Middle School Students in grades 6-9 are powering through their last full week of the 2021-22 year by showing School Spirit! We'll be kicking off the week by dressing like our favourite character from a show, book, history, band, or so much more on Monday!

Our 8s were diving into the science and social issues of filtering unsanitary water. Clean and safe drinking water is something we take for granted but for almost 1 billion people around the world this isn’t the case. #yycbe #wearecbe #edchat

Strong mental math skills start and end with the use games and manipulatives. Games like totality build resilience to create stronger understanding of number sense. #yyccbe #wearecbe #math #maths #edchat #mathchat
