kinder - Wee program

Kinder Bears is an early learning, school preparedness program for children age 4 + (children must be 4 yrs by December 31st of that program year). Kinder Bears is offered side-by-side with our very successful Wee Bears program. Parents and younger siblings are on-site, attending Wee Bears, while older children attend Kinder Bears in an adjacent room.

The Kinder Bears program places a greater emphasis on literacy and early learning to enhance school readiness skills. Children are encourged to 'sign in' and choose books to borrow from our program room library thus promoting independent learning & ownership of the program.

Our programs & services are offered at no charge to the community. Please note registration is required.

Read the following comments from past parent participants:

"It was such an opportunity for my child to interact with other children in a pre-school setting. The environment was supportive for my child allowing him to feel comfortable with starting some 'serparation' from me. An enjoyable experience for us both. Thank-you, great job!"
