Wise owl offers preschool programs for students 3 to 4 years of age. The preschool program is designed to ensure students develop the necessary skills to succeed in Junior and Senior Kindergarten, through providing them with enriching, educational, engaging activities.
Younger kids learn best through engaging, interesting, educational hands-on activities. At Wise Owl, the Junior Kindergarten curriculum is designed to challenge the students to think outside the box within and outside the classroom, put on their thinking caps by taking what they learned in class and connect them with real life situations.
In areas of Math and Science, we focus on cognitive development through problem-solving and promoting an understanding of how nature and science interact with our daily lives. In Junior Kindergarten, students develop skills in Number Sense (i.e., counting in different ways, exploring how many objects there are, etc.), Measurement (i.e. (ordering, comparing and measuring objects); Geometry (building and talking about shapes), Data Management and Probability (i.e. sorting, classifying and comparing information on graphs).
In addition, students not only could channel their personalities and creativity through daily activities, but also develop the understanding of self, problem-solving skills and the ability to express their ideas and thoughts.
Senior Kindergarten is such an important phase for children as they are preparing to transition to Grade 1 in the upcoming school year. Students will continue to expand on topics that are being covered in Junior Kindergarten as well as explore new educational frontiers.
The Senior Kindergarten curriculum is designed in a way to encourage students to get out of their comfort zone, to challenge them to be creative and think outside the box, whether it’s within the classroom or outside, and apply what they learned in class to their daily lives.
In the areas of Math and Science, students continue to develop their problem-solving skills and to challenge themselves to connect their previous experiences with the topics covered in class.
Lastly, in the realm of art, students continue to expand their knowledge on more complex terms and to develop better visual and physical coordination. Through interactive hands-on activities, students could explore various materials and methods used in creating art pieces.
