Interlake School Division Introduces Junior Kindergarten 

Why Junior Kindergarten? The Interlake School Division (ISD) would like to support children born in 2014 and their families in the transition to Kindergarten by offering a voluntary, no-charge drop-off program in each ISD community. Children learn through play. During the Junior Kindergarten program children will be exploring, creating, and developing their imaginations while participating in a wide range of child-centered activities in an enriching environment.

 What is Junior Kindergarten?  While attending the Junior Kindergarten program, children will sing songs, read stories, play games, and build on their strengths. Growing accustomed to their community school will help ensure a smooth transition to Kindergarten. Excitement about attending school will build as children engage in fun activities.

When is Junior Kindergarten?  Junior Kindergarten will be offered one half day per week from November to April. Following  Kindergarten registration at the end of September, we will know specific dates for our Junior Kindergarten program.

Where is Junior Kindergarten?  Junior Kindergarten will run in each of our communities that have Kindergarten.  Junior Kindergarten programs will take place in our schools and,  wherever possible, will have access to the many exciting things that schools have to offer like libraries, playgrounds, and gymnasiums.

Who will run Junior Kindergarten?  Interlake School Division employs two exceptional Early Childhood Educators who are thrilled to be bringing this program to the future students of the Interlake School Division.  Each of our educators have over 25 years experience in the field of early childhood education and look forward to working with parents/guardians and their children.
