Junior & Senior Kindergarten at Calgary Changemaker School 

 For the 2022-2023 school year we are offering two Kindergarten programs:

  • Our Senior Kindergarten is a full-time program for 4-5 year olds.

    • Children must be born in 2017 for a September 2022 start. 

      •  8:30am-3:30pm 5 days per week.

        • Maximum of 12 students.

          • Students will graduate to Grade 1. 

        • *All students must be able to independently use the washroom.

  • Our Junior Kindergarten is a half-day program for 3-4 year olds.

    • Children must be born in 2018 for a September 2022 start.

      • 8:30am-11:30am 4 days per week (Monday-Thursday).

        • Maximum 8 students.​

          • Students will graduate to Senior Kindergarten. 

        • *All students must be able to independently use the washroom. (We are unable to change diapers or assist with wiping).

 

Our Kindergarten programs connect daily outdoor nature play with emergent and inquiry learning. Much of what we do in Kindergarten (and at all grade levels) is inspired by the Reggio Emilia project-based approach to education in addition to the Forest School philosophy.

Our students are offered academic challenges that are appropriate for their age and individual abilities and will develop a strong yet joyful foundation in literacy and numeracy. Other key elements of our program include social-emotional learning, empathy building and teamwork skills.

 

Our primary goal for Kindergarten students is to nurture a lifelong love of learning and we believe young children learn best through play. Play-based classrooms are highly social and active and teachers use the interests of students and their natural curiosity as the driver for instruction.

 

We offer quiet reading, art and rest periods throughout the day to ensure young students are able to recharge between the more active intellectual, play and social times.

 

Our Senior Kindergarten students will also have opportunities to participate in many of the co-curricular classes, activities and field trips that our older students participate in. 

 

We encourage family members and older students in our school to sign up for volunteer days in our Kindergarten classroom to build a broader sense of community and connection.
