Early Childhood Services (ECS)
Junior Kindergarten & Kindergarten
Renfrew’s Junior Kindergarten and Kindergarten programs help nurture learning and social skills that will last a lifetime.
We offer an inclusive environment that brings together children with special needs and children who are typically developing. Together, they grow to love learning and to value the differences in others. Our favourable child-to-staff ratios allow the individual needs of children to be met.
Early schooling is the critical time to maximize a child’s potential and teach positive learning skills. Renfrew fosters an inclusive environment of enthusiasm, caring, respect and openness to new ideas.
As an independent school, Renfrew follows the curriculum set out by Alberta Education which has a strong focus on early literacy, early numeracy, citizenship, environment and community awareness, personal responsibility, physical well-being, and creative expression.
Renfrew strongly believes in nurturing a love of the arts. Music specialists develop programs to enhance children’s musical skills and understanding. Teachers plan a wide variety of art projects such as drawing, painting, collage and play-dough creations for the children to develop their artistic creativity and problem solving abilities. Teachers also provide opportunities for children to experience drama through the use of puppets, role playing, dramatic storytelling and other creative activities.
To enhance physical development and fitness, physical education and movement experiences are incorporated into our programs on a daily basis.
