School’s Cool

Up to 22 children in a group, ages 3 to 5 years of age, take part in a play-based curriculum held during July and August. Although the location varies, the programs are held in one or more kindergarten classrooms of the Trillium Lakelands District School Board. The fun activities prepare children for the challenges and opportunities of kindergarten. Children typically increase their language, math, self-help, psychological and social skills by up to one year in development over the 6 weeks of the program.

Three trained instructors provide a low teacher-to-student ratio so all children receive quality time. Because instructors focus on each child’s strengths, it is a positive, often life-changing, experience for children. Children start school in the fall enthusiastic and ready for success.
