Growing Minds – Building Dreams

All children are competent, capable of complex thinking, curious, and rich in potential and experience. They grow up in families with diverse social, cultural, and linguistic perspectives. Every child should feel that he or she belongs, is a valuable contributor to his or her surroundings, and deserves the opportunity to succeed. When we recognize children as competent, capable, and curious, we are more likely to deliver programs that value and build on their strengths and abilities. (The Kindergarten Program, 2016 , 10)

2018 Kindergarten Information and Registration Night

The Sudbury Catholic District School Board held its Full Day Kindergarten Registration and Information sessions on Wednesday, January 24, 2018. These Information sessions were available for parents wanting to register their child(ren) for school beginning September 2018 (For children turning 4 years of age on or before December 31, 2018). If you were unable to attend these sessions at your school, we encourage you to contact the school to register on an alternative date. Both regular (English) and French Immersion programming is available.

Vision, Purpose and Goals

The primary goals of the Kindergarten program are:

  • to establish a strong foundation for learning in the early years;

  • to help children make a smooth transition from home, child care, or preschool settings to school settings;

  • to allow children to reap the many proven benefits of learning through relationships, and through play and inquiry;

  • to set children on a path of lifelong learning and nurture competencies that they will need to thrive in the world of today and tomorrow.

The Four Frames of the Kindergarten Program

In the Kindergarten program, four “frames”, or broad areas of learning, are used to structure thinking about learning and assessment. The frames − Belonging and Contributing, Self-Regulation and Well-Being, Demonstrating Literacy and Mathematics Behaviours, and Problem Solving and Innovating − are designed to support an approach that aligns with the way children’s learning naturally occurs and that focuses on aspects of learning that are critical to young children’s development. The frames reflect the integrated way in which learning occurs during children’s play and inquiry in Kindergarten.
