KINDERGARTEN PROGRAMMING

THE JOURNEY BEGINS AT SCS

Kindergarten at SCS is a special time...in a special place...for special people.  On any given day, our children may be acting out a Bible story, playing games, writing in their journals, singing songs, learning to read or praying.  With group time, learning centres, and teacher guided movement activities, our kindergarten teacher provides a Christian basis for social and academic development.  We emphasize experiential learning and play-based activities to best allow children to develop at their own pace while encouraging them to reach and enjoy their full potential.

SCS has an exceptional program, rooted in a faith setting, which sets the foundation for lifelong learning
