Kindergarten at Lakehead Public Schools

All Lakehead Public Schools Kindergarten Programs provide instruction and play-based learning where children develop socially and emotionally through interaction with their peers and the adults who teach and guide them.  Students develop their capacity in language and mathematics, and engage in healthy physical activities and the arts.

Each child is unique and exceptional

Children arrive at school with different backgrounds, experiences and are at different stages of development.  Teachers and parents working together can provide learning experiences that will build each student’s confidence and give everyone the best possible start.

Who Should Register?

JK – Children who will turn 4 in 2018
SK (SKFI) – Children who will turn 5 in 2018
(Please remember to bring proof of your child’s age.)

If you have a child attending JK in one of our schools, you:

  • DO NOT need to register for SK English.
  • DO need to register for SK French Immersion.
We encourage you to contact your school Principal to talk about the Kindergarten program and how the program will support your child’s educational adventure.

In Our Kindergarten

We share.
We play fair and take turns.
We are kind to each other.  Friends are important and worth keeping.
We listen to each other.
When we are working on a problem, two heads are better than one.
We put things back where they belong.
We look after our own belongings and respect the belongings of others.
We tell people how we feel about the things they do.
We exercise our bodies every day.  It helps us feel better and makes us ready to learn.
We have people read to us every day.  It opens the world to us.
We experiment with writing.  It will help us to remember things.
We sing and dance and draw pictures.  It makes learning fun.
We look everywhere.  We talk to each other.  We observe things.
This is our classroom.  We take care of it.
