Beginning in September 2021, Buena Vista School will offer half-day prekindergarten and an alternating day kindergarten program with a focus on experiential, outdoor, and land-based learning.
Outdoor and indoor learning environments collectively support child development. The new programs at Buena Vista will support children's development holistically, help young learners achieve grade-level literacy by Grade 3, and strengthen our school and community.
The programs' teacher will share their knowledge, passion, and experience in areas such as land-based learning, developing and accessing outdoor environments, and engaging families.
Prekindergarten and kindergarten learning helps children to:
- develop language and communication skills,
- develop problem-solving skills,
- learn to co-operate with others,
- make new friendships,
- prepare for future learning in the school environment.
Applications for prekindergarten and registration for kindergarten are being accepted for the 2021-22 school year.
