St. Bernard's Kinderstart Program
St. Bernard's Elementary offers 5 Kinderstart days to children who are preparing to attend Kindergarten in the coming September. Parents will attend a general information session prior to these sessions and will be given a schedule. Children will get to meet all kindergarten teachers, Ms. O'Brien, Mrs. Charlene Power & Ms. Kathleen Sullivan as well as other school personnel that may interact with your child in kindergarten. Each of the four sessions are two hours in length. Parents stay with their child for part of the first session and then attend information sessions for the others while the children stay with the classroom teacher. The goal of these sessions is to assist children with the transition into kindergarten and to familiarize themselves with the school environment and personnel.
A small snack will be needed during the sessions. Please be aware, there are allergies in the school: NO peanuts, tree nuts, eggs (this does not include egg that is baked in), kiwi, shellfish and fish.
The Kinderstart dates for 2017-18 are: December 8th, January 12th, March 10th, May 10th.
In the event of a weather cancellation, a make up day will be announced.
If you know of a child who will be of age to attend kindergarten at St. Bernard's but has not yet registered, please have them contact the school as soon as possible to arrange registration.
If your child has any medical or learning needs, please contact us to discuss prior to school starting so we can ensure that we have supports in place if necessary.
