Building Curiosity & Confidence
Our Kindergarten classroom is a place of belonging, contributing, self-regulating and wellbeing. Our curriculum invites young learners to discover and pursue what excites them under the guidance of engaged educators. Add to this a Structured Literacy Program, Arts and Athletic Field Trips, Wonder Walks, Units of Inquiry and Emergent Science, the RDS Kindergarten experience offers a culturally responsive pedagogy while developing independence, self-confidence, and curiosity about the world through a child-centred, inquiry-based approach.
How Children See Themselves Matters
The Kindergarten Program at RDS is focused on developing independence through a child-centred, inquiry-based approach. In class, students interact with provocations (creative work stations) that encourage independent problem solving skills and design-based thinking. Students learn about belonging and the importance of contributing through co-regulation, empathy and constructive conflict solving. Both classrooms and curricula are designed with the intention of being easily accessed and interpreted by children according to their age and comprehension level.
