Kindergarten Readiness

Lay a good foundation for success in your child's first days of school life.

Do you have a child starting Junior Kindergarten in the fall? Our Kindergarten Readiness program prepares children and their families for the transition into the school system.

This three-day summer program in partnership with schools in Marmora, Madoc, and Tweed is for children who will be attending Junior Kindergarten in September. The Kindergarten Readiness program runs in all three communities.

  • Familiarize your child with their school.
  • Gain insight into the pickup/drop off procedure.
  • Practice school routines and activities.
  • Your child will meet potential classmates and new friends prior to the beginning of school.
  • Increase your child’s confidence about starting this exciting new adventure.
  • Especially beneficial for children who have not attended day care or nursery school programs.
