Kindergarten Registration

We are so excited to meet your child when they start Kindergarten this September! Thames Valley’s Kindergarten classrooms are safe places for children to meet new friends and socialize in rich learning environments.

Our Kindergarten educator teams are each comprised of a Teacher and Early Childhood Educator who provide many play-based learning experiences to meet each child's needs and interests. All children are offered opportunities to explore, investigate and learn with their friends both indoors and outside. We look forward to meeting your child!

About Kindergarten

You can expect that throughout each day, your child will be involved in spontaneous play as well as more structured play-based learning. As children play, they learn about the world around them and how it works, about other people, and about themselves. Teachers and Early Childhood Educators have carefully organized the full day for your child, keeping in mind that young children will require adequate nutrition breaks and quiet opportunities.

The activities offered to your child are based on the Kindergarten program document, developed by the Ministry of Education. It is a program that capitalizes on the children's natural curiosity and their desire to make sense of their environment. Through exploration, investigation, and communication, your child will be excited about their learning.
