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. Generally, sessions happen once a month between January and May. Children will get to meet both kindergarten teachers, Mrs. Charlene Power & Ms. Kathleen Sullivan as well as other school personnel that may interact with your child in kindergarten. Each of the five sessions are one hour in length. Parents stay with their child for the first two 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.
This year's Parent Information Session will take place on Thursday, January 14th, 2016 at 7pm. It is important that at least one parent or guardian attend this session to ensure that you receive adequate information.
The Kinderstart dates for 2016 are: January 22, February 26, March 18, April 15 & May 13th
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.
