Assistant Deputy Minister of Early Learning Division Visits Sudbury Catholic District School Board

Brady Brown, a Junior Kindergarten student at St. Raphael explains to Jim Grieve, Assistant Deputy Minister of the Early Learning Division his colouring assignment.

February 8, 2010 - The Sudbury Catholic District School Board was pleased to have Jim Grieve, Assistant Deputy Minister of the Early Learning Division and Pam Musson, Director of Implementation of Early Learning visit some of its elementary schools to look at examples of Full Day Senior Kindergarten and Junior Kindergarten classes as well as visit a Best Start Hub. Catherine McCullough, Director of Education for the Sudbury Catholic District School Board joined the visitors at St. Raphael and Pius XII Catholic Elementary Schools to see example of schools that have full day senior kindergarten as many other boards in the province have only half day kindergarten. With the full implementation of full day early learning and Junior Kindergarten in the fall of 2010, the Assistant Deputy Minister of the Early Learning Division and Director of Implementation of Early Learning visited both schools to better understand the organization and process of full day learning that Sudbury Catholic already has in place (S.K.). In partnership with the Best Start Hubs and (at Pius XII) Maple Tree Preschool, the Sudbury Catholic District School Board was able to highlight some great examples of how teachers and early childhood educators are already working together in the classroom to help students learn and grow.
