Supporting Your Child
As your child's first and most important teacher, parents play a critical role in their education. You can support your child at home by talking about the school day, what they have learned, and displaying their work. You might also consider
volunteering in the classroom or becoming a member of the school council. There are
many ways to become involved!
Most CBE schools offer half-day or alternating full-day kindergarten programs; however full-day kindergarten programs are offered in a few schools where data identifies children who would most benefit from additional time spent in a kindergarten program. The data used to determine full-day kindergarten schools is updated every year. This means that schools that offer full-day kindergarten may change on an annual basis.
For the 2023-24 school year, the following schools offer full-day kindergarten:
- Banting and Best
