School transition is integrated into the kindergarten program throughout the year to ensure your child has the social, emotional and physical skills to enable them to be prepared to begin their primary school education. Throughout the year we encourage families to discuss their child’s development or any concerns they may have with the Kindergarten teacher at any time.
By participating in the Kindergarten program at CKHKX your family has the flexibility of long day care hours and access to CCB and CCR (for eligible families).
Community Kids Haven Kinder Program will support your child helping them to develop life skills and giving them the best start to school.
How do we do this? We encourage the following:
- We encourage the children to use their voice to communicate their ideas and feelings.
