Junior Kindergarten with a Balmoral Hall difference

The enhanced Junior Kindergarten / 4-year-old program is a ten-month program that has been well thought out and based on best practice as well as world wide research. It is an inquiry based program that incorporates best practices. With a focus on literacy and numeracy, there is ample time for the children to learn through exploration. The flexible schedule allows for time in the Center for Learning, the STEAM Lab (science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics), and exploring our magnificent outdoor space. With a low teacher to child ratio, the day is filled with a combination of teacher guided and student guided activities as well as exposure to music, dance, French and Physical Education.

With the child at the heart of the program, we have created a balanced and focused curriculum including: 
 
  • Numeracy 
  • Literacy
  • Relationships 
  • Well-Being
 
The JK / 4-year-old program provides a solid foundation of inquiry for the International Primary Years Program which is offered in Junior School, Kindergarten to Grade 5.
