September 26, 2014 - This September, St. David Catholic Elementary School implemented full-day junior and senior kindergarten. It is the fifth and final year of full-day kindergarten in schools across the province. “We are very excited to have the FDK program at St. David. It is a wonderful addition to our school community,” said Jennifer Gran, FDK teacher.

This new kindergarten program employs not only classroom teachers, but also early childhood educators. The teachers and the ECE's work as a teaching team to support child development, behaviour and improved academic achievement. "Our goal is to give each child the best start possible in school. We work together with the community to build our student's confidence and provide a solid foundation for their learning." states Angela Ross, St. David School ECE.

The FDK program encourages children to learn through play and small group instruction. Learning through play and in small groups assists children in developing positive self regulation skills, age appropriate problem solving strategies and a general love of learning.

St. David Catholic School invites all FDK students and their families to meet their new teachers and early childhood educators at the school's open house on September 30 at 4 pm.
