Orientation Night
St. Bernadette School
May 4th, 2015
Focus on Faith Prayer
• Jesus, Friend and Teacher, you ask us,
• “Who do you say that I am?” Thank you for inviting us
• to know you more each day. Quiet our minds to hear your Word;
to love you more; for the more we know you,
• the more brightly we reflect you. You meet us in our every need,
your love, new each day!
• Guide us as we build your kingdom, and find our home in you;
for you are the Lord, the face of God,
• And the breath of the Holy Spirit.
• Amen

The Full-Day Early Learning Kindergarten
Program
•
“Play nourishes every aspect of
children’s development—it forms the
foundation of intellectual, social,
physical, and emotional skills
necessary for success in school and
in life. Play “paves the way for
learning”.
Canadian Council on Learning, Lessons in Learning (2006) cited in The
Full-Day Early Learning-Kindergarten Program (Draft), 2010
Play-based Learning
• Providing large blocks for play
• Supporting children’s ideas and
interests
• Providing a variety of hands-on
experiences
• Responding, challenging and extending
children’s thinking and learning
Children are curious and connect prior
knowledge to new experiences in order
to understand the world around them.
Religious
Development
In kindergarten, the aim is to assist
children to see traces of God in and
around them.
