The Junior Kindergarten (JK) program prepares preschool-aged children to enter into the academic kindergarten environment. A balance of play and curriculum-based activities provide opportunities for children to develop skills in: literacy, numeracy, science, language, music, and fitness. Weekly learning units and themes incorporate activities that are flexible and follow children’s interests and natural curiosity.

Junior Kindergarten students are part of our OWL (Outside While Learning) Program and join the Kindergarten students in the exploration of our natural environment in dedicated sessions every week. Art is integrated throughout the program. Girls also benefit from specialist instruction in French, Mandarin and Physical Education, and weekly visits with the teacher-librarian in our school library.

Daily routine supports a child's need for nutrition and rest. Experienced educators provide a nurturing environment that piques the natural curiosity of preschool-aged girls, and offer experiences that enhance successful learning through play, exploration, and social interaction.
