Kindergarten

We are extremely excited about our Kindergarten programs! St. Dominic offers a 5 day full time kindergarten in both English and French Immersion.

St. Dominic School follows the Kindergarten curriculum as set out by Alberta Education. The Kindergarten provides expectations in seven learning areas: Early Literacy, Early Numeracy, Citizenship and Identity, Environment and Community Awareness, Personal and Social Responsibility, Physical Skills and Well-being, and Creative Expression. Here is a link to the Kindergarten Curriculum Handbook For Parents that explains in more detail the areas listed above.

Our 5 day program provides students with the time and opportunities to develop and increase their skills in preparation for Grade One. We focus on early-literacy skills and early-numeracy skills through an inquiry-based approach to learning. Research states that we learn best by doing. The Kindergarten program allows student to learn through experience. The teacher guides the learning by providing children with the opportunities to explore, create and discover. This is the foundation for developing skills for problem solving and critical thinking.

As we move into the digital age and information comes at us so quickly and easily, it is critical that we teach our children to look at the world through a critical lens and be able to problem solve in new, creative, and innovative ways. For St. Dominic School, this begins with our Kindergarten students and remains a focus through our Grade 1 to 6 classes.
