Cariboo Adventist kindergarten open house May 17

Cariboo Adventist Academy is inviting all prospective kindergarteners to join them for our Kindergarten Open House on Tuesday, May 17, from 12:30-2:30 p.m.  Sending your child to visit does not obligate you to register at CAA, The school simply wants to provide kindergarteners with a fun afternoon as they anticipate going to school next fall plus a time for parents to get info on our half-day kindergarten program for next school year.

Kindergarten is that first taste of real school, learning the alphabet and falling in love with books, making crafts of all shapes and kinds, going on field trips, and myriads of other exciting activities. 

Most students remember back to their kindergarten year with fond memories, and so they should!  

Kindergarten is the year where learning and fun are wrapped up in one, glorious package!  

At Cariboo Adventist Academy, they want the kindergarten year to be one of special memories and remember we can do that with half-day kindergarten.  

Solid preparation for Grade 1 that sets the stage for elementary school is the primary goal of any kindergarten.  

There are specific skills and concepts that need to be in place for Grade 1, and through a variety of learning activities and experiences, encouraging each little pupil to grow in his/her own particular learning style and at his/her own pace. 

At CAA they ensure that its kindergarteners are well-prepared for the start of elementary school and it can do it with an excellent half day program.  

“We chose the half-day program because of its benefits to students and it fits best into our philosophy of education and research seems to show it is best for young students” says CAA principal Lee Richards.

“Christian values are at the centre of our program while we teach all the skills needed for entering Grade 1 in a fun and safe learning environment,” continues Lisa Brucks, next year’s CAA kindergarten teacher.

If you are interested in half-day kindergarten for your child next year then you are invited to bring your child to the CAA open house.

There is no obligation for you to register your child at CAA next school year. 

For more info or to register your child call 250-392-4741. You may also set up an appointment to visit with next year’s teacher, Mrs. Brucks, if you have any questions about the program.
