In the coming weeks, Conseil scolaire catholique du Nouvel-Ontario (CSCNO) French language Catholic elementary schools will be offering a warm welcome to children who are starting Kindergarten in September 2018 as well as their parents/guardians. All families having registered their children in a French language Catholic school are invited to the “Bienvenue à la maternelle” (Welcome to Kindergarten) event.
This welcoming activity is of great importance for schools since it allows parents whose children will start Kindergarten this fall to develop ties with their school and to establish a strong relationship from the start. In an effort to promote a smooth transition to Kindergarten, this celebration will include several activities for children and parents, and will benefit from the presence of several school ambassadors. Parents will also receive important information relating to speech development, social and daycare services, gentle beginnings schedule as well as school transportation.
In August, incoming Kindergarten students will have the opportunity to participate at no cost in the “Apprends-p’tit” program, in a dozen CSCNO schools. This two-week program will allow students to familiarize themselves with the school environment and Kindergarten routine. Through play-centred activities, children will be able to develop their grasp of the French language, faith, self-confidence and social skills.
