The kindergarten program at Gramma Marie`s Children`s Centre is for children who attend kindergarten classes at schools in the Pembina Trails School Division. Typically children attend their regular kindergarten class (either AM or PM) and are transported between their school and our centre. Transportation arrangements are made through our director. When the children are not at school, they participate in age-appropriate activities at the centre such as science, games, art, cooking, reading, drama, music and sports. We openly communicate with parents and kindergarten teachers in our community. Our program runs throughout the year and our kindergartens are guaranteed full day childcare on in-service days and during the summer months.
This dynamic program is specifically designed with the interests of school children in mind: a place where fun and learning go hand-in-hand. Our program gives children an opportunity to participate in activities such as science, games, art, cooking, reading, drama, music and sports. Responding to each child’s learning style, abilities, developmental levels and interests, our teachers plan activities both inside and outside the classroom. Children can also work on homework assignments. Our program runs throughout the year and we offer all-day childcare during the summer months and during all inservice days. Transportation to school is available.
