In Ontario, Full-Day kindergarten gives our four- or five-year-olds a stronger start at school. At Camp Waterdown, we give JK / SK eligible children a summer opportunity to get ready for their new role in our school systems.
There are many things that you can do at home to prepare your child for school. You can give them a positive start on learning and support them during kindergarten but, Camp Waterdown can take that a step further. This summer camp provides JK / SK eligible children with a quality, fun summer day program while best preparing children for their future learning in the school system.
Our program operates similarly to how the school boards offer their kindergarten programs with similar routines and schedules. The class size is small, with a 1:13 ratio at most, allowing for optimal teacher-child interaction in a nurturing setting. All our groups are segmented according to age in order to give children the best opportunities to interact with close-age peers.
In keeping with Camp Waterdown’s focus on learning, this program will strongly hone in on components of literacy, numeracy and language through enriched play opportunities. For just a week or the whole summer, Camp Waterdown with its exceptional ECE-led Staff and multi-needs experience is one of the best places to start your child off on the right path to life long learning.
