Our Junior Pre-School group includes the younger students of the Pre-School Department. They have graduated from the infant and toddler department and are ready to take on more challenging activities.
Brant’s Junior Pre-School Language Program focuses on the first building block of learning to read, which is phonetic awareness and sounds. We use a multisensory approach along with Alphabet Kid characters to connect specific sounds with a likeable and known character such as “s” is for Simon Seal!
In Junior Pre-School, we continue:
• vocabulary development program,
• mathematics – numbers and numeration and shapes,
• personal and social development,
• art and music.
We also start:
• Roots & Shoots,
• Simple Science Experiments.
“The knowledge and skills needed to be successful in the 21st century begin in a child’s formative years. As never before, children need a sound foundation and the ability to read and reason. These are fundamental goals of Brant Children’s Centre.” (Dr. Heather Knoepfli, 2001)
