The IB Primary Years Programme

Junior Kindergarten

Our enriched Junior Kindergarten (4-year-old) program is a 10-month program that has been developed from best practices worldwide. An inquiry-based program, we focus on literacy and numeracy with ample time for our students to learn through exploration. A flexible schedule allows for time in our Centre for Learning & Wellness, Benidickson Centre for Arts & Design, and exploring our magnificent outdoor spaces. With an enhanced child-to-educator ratio, the day is filled with a combination of educator-guided and student-guided activities, as well as music, dance, French, and physical education.

With the child at the heart of the program, Junior Kindergarten provides a solid foundation of inquiry for Junior School, particularly the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP).
