Discover Kindergarten

Limestone Learning Foundation

The Kindergarten program, offered in both French and English, aims to nurture the whole child. Learning environments are intentionally designed with open-ended materials, sensory areas, literacy, mathematics and meaningful problem solving opportunities. The Kindergarten program allows children to develop emotionally, socially and physically: to grow creatively, and to engage in dialogue and celebrate their learning.

The program and classroom learning environments, both indoors and outside, support prior learning in meaningful activities that meet the Ontario Ministry of Education Kindergarten Program document (2016) expectations.

The Kindergarten program is based-on a foundation of play, which is essential to how children experience and make sense of their world. Play is a vehicle for learning and rests at the core of well-being, innovation and creativity. This program honours the active and exploratory learning styles of each young child. As children develop through similar stages at their own pace, this program provides learning experiences that meet individual curiosities, interests and developmental levels.

Here are some areas of the curriculum you may wish to explore:

  • Language
  • Mathematics
  • Science and Technology
  • Personal and Social Development
  • The Arts
  • Health and Physical Activity
