Message from KG Supervisor

For us a happy child is a successful one.

Children need to be nurtured and we do that by providing a positive, safe and stimulating environment where all children are valued. We intend that all children should enjoy their learning, achieve their potential and become independent life-long learners.

At the very onset our goal has always been to equip our bright kindergarteners with the skills and mindset to thrive and then take on the world. Our vision is for each child to develop a curiosity of learning, discover their interests and grow in their love of learning.

Kindergarten at the JSS international school helps prepare children and motivate them for a rapidly changing world. It strives to instill in them critical thinking skills, a global perspective and embed respect for core values of empathy, compassion and honesty.

We strongly believe that our Kindergarteners will have success for today and be prepared for tomorrow.

The 3 Pillars of Kindergarten

1) Curriculum

The Kindergarten follows an eclectic blend of EYFS and the dynamic Ontario curriculum which aims to provide a meaningful child centered and play based content. It helps nurture and facilitate life skills, independence, confidence and resilience. The rationale of the curriculum is strong and supports each child in achieving their potential and enables them to make a smooth transition to school and society itself.

The Early Years Foundation Stage focusses on 7 areas of learning

  • Communication and language.
  • Physical development.
  • Personal, social and emotional development.
  • Literacy.
  • Mathematics.
  • Understanding the world.
  • Expressive arts and design.

These are delivered through learning centers that use "PLAY" as an underpinning tool to deliver the curriculum.

Performing arts-drama and music, Sensorial activities, inquiry based learning, STEAM, fitness and dance are some of the co-curricular offered to children to showcase their skills and provide a platform for holistic personality development.

The Kindergarten curriculum in JSS international has been effectively designed to provide exceptional care to children while fostering each child’s intellectual, social, physical and moral development in an academic-rich environment.

2. DREAM TEAM

Kindergarten teachers are the first people to introduce students to the world of education. They open doors that some children didn’t even know existed!

The Kindergarten Team in JSSIS pride themselves on making a difference in the lives of each little child they teach. Teachers in Kindergarten have tremendous passion for what they do-“facilitate learning and nurture curiosity “and that translates into each one of our tiny tots reaching their truest potential.

Teachers in Kindergarten possess expertise and knowledge and an in-depth understanding of the subjects they are teaching and remain up-to-date with all the latest developments in the field of Early Years. They are creative and innovative in their planning. This ensures that our children are interested and participate wholeheartedly in the wide range of activities meticulously planned for them.

No wonder the TEAM was rated as VERY GOOD in The DSIB inspection 2019-2020.
