Children learn through play

Our goal is to provide many kinds of play experiences that support each child's development at his or her own pace, preparing them for entry into Grade 1 and providing a foundation for further success. Kindergarten provides developmentally appropriate learning experiences to meet the diverse needs of children and promote a positive attitude towards lifelong learning.

Rochester School's Kindergarten Program curriculum strives to develop early literacy, early numeracy and social-emotional development for school readiness and educational success. All children have strengths, and we promote the positive accomplishments each child makes. Children are encouraged to explore, discover, and interact.

Rochester School is very community-minded, and our Kindergarten students participate in all school events and have use of all school facilities.

Additional supports available include speech language therapy, occupational therapy, and behavioural therapy.
