Okotoks Junior Kindergarten
Junior Kindergarten (2 groups: 3 years old & 4 years old)
Junior Kindergarten (JK) is a structured educational program intended for children aged 3 and 4.
Children in Junior Kindergarten become familiarized with French and basic academic concepts. At this age, children go through multiple activities in a whole day: songs, movements, crafts, art, free play, outdoor play, music, fine motor skills, counting, napping, story time, etc. A balance between structured and unstructured activities best fits this age group's needs.
At V.I.K. Academy Okotoks, JK Students are divided into two groups: 3 years old, and 4 years old. This allow us to better meet children where they are in their development. Children are assigned to an educator who guides them through their daily activities. With a ratio of 1 adult for 8 children, educators have the chance to develop a close relationship with all children. We find that to be a key factor in the emotional development of young children.
All of our Okotoks Programs are part of the ELCC initiative and as such, there is a flat fee of $546 for Full Time Care.
