Junior Kindergarten

Our Junior Kindergarten Philosophy

Pat Hardy Junior Kindergarten (JK) supports each child’s individual emotional, social, intellectual, creative, and physical growth and development. We encourage children to explore, question, discover and acquire skills of critical thinking and collaboration in a warm and stimulating play-based learning environment. Children express interests and ideas, research for further information, reflect on the experience, and form conclusions. Staff observe and respond accordingly to develop engaging and rich learning experiences that are challenging and relevant for children. Through this process, children develop confidence and independence.

Play is an active, child-initiated process that supports children’s learning through physical, social, emotional, and creative domains. A learning environment stimulates play through activities that extend learning into the areas of math, science, language, and literacy. Children come together to share what they have been engaged in and to celebrate successes and challenges. Staff are actively observing, supporting, and extending their play by asking open-ended questions related to the concepts being explored.

We believe that learning should be an adventure. Your child’s learning experience is bound only by their imagination. Our learning approach encourages young children to explore, question, and discover in a stimulating environment. Children express interests and ideas, research for further information, reflect on the experience, and form conclusions. Through this explorative process, children develop confidence and independence with encouragement from others.
