The Kinder House is a new Kindergarten program being offered in the Hillsdale area of Regina for children who will transition into grade one in the Regina Public or Catholic school systems. Our Kindergarten class will be very similar to the Kindergarten programs being offered in the Regina Public and Catholic school systems but with a more consistent, half-day, five day per week schedule.
The Kinder House program will follow the Saskatchewan Curriculum as set out by the Ministry of Education. We will be exploring weekly themes, building our literacy levels and developing our numeracy skills. Gross motor skill development is important at this young age so Physical Education will be a daily part of our program.
There will be an Open House event in late August 2021 so that students can see their classroom before school begins. Stay Tuned!
ABOUT THE TEACHER
I have a Bachelor of Education degree from the University of Saskatchewan as well as an Early Childhood Diploma from the North American Montessori Center. I have worked in public schools and private schools, in Canada and overseas. I have taught grades PreK-3, worked in a childcare centre, and also ran my own home daycare in the year before my son was born. My variety of experience has provided me with a multi-faceted perspective on the schooling experience. Click here for more information.
The school year will be similar to the Catholic School Board’s academic calendar for 2021/22, with similar holidays observed.
As our Kindergarten legally falls under the childcare regulations of the COVID-19 protocols, the government recommended guidelines will be closely followed.
Students will need to wear masks while at school until the guidelines indicate it is safe to remove them in indoor spaces. Stringent hand and surface cleaning will also be followed until such time as the restrictions ease for childcare spaces.
Drop off time will begin at 8:50 a.m. with all students arriving by 9:00. Pick up will be at 12:00 p.m. As snack and outdoor recess will be parts of our program, students will need to bring a backpack and weather-appropriate outdoor clothing daily.
The Kinder House program tuition is $350 per month. A $100 registration fee will secure your child's spot in the program. A $50 material fee will be due when school begins.
Tax receipts will be issued in February.
