Kindergarten - Student and Family Wellbeing

We understand that it isn’t always easy to have your child attend online sessions. If your child is unable to attend all the live sessions, that’s ok.

We want your child to feel happy and secure during this period. Sometimes just having the live session on in the background can engage and captivate. Sometimes your child might not want to engage at all. Please don't worry. We can record and upload live sessions if needed, and offline activities can be done at any time. 

TIPS FOR A SUCCESSFUL ZOOM SESSION: 

  • Help your child get lots of movement and encourage play OFFLINE between sessions.
  • Have a yummy breakfast to start the day!
  • Make sure to put your child's name on the screen.
  • Help your child sign on every morning.
  • Remember it’s all about celebrating the process, not the end product. 
  • Keep it fun and stress free. If your child is not up for a Zoom, that is ok.

READING WITH YOUR CHILD: READ! READ! READ!

Reading together with your child is one of the most important things you can do to help develop language skills.

  • It builds vocabulary and imagination.
  • It allows your child to make connections to themselves and the world around them. 
  • It provides the precious one on one time that children crave.
  • Storytelling doesn't have to come from a book. Share stories from your childhood and imagination.

THE VALUE OF PLAY

As your children play they are building fundamental skills for learning and development. These include, but are not limited to; coordination, fine and gross motor development, social emotional development etc.

For Example

  • Playing with playdough strengthens fingers for writing. 
  • Building with blocks develops numeracy skills. 
  • Any type of mark making is fundamental for writing development. 
  • Cooking with parents builds language and life skills.
  • Pretend play and role-playing builds communication and creativity.
  • Interacting with siblings builds problem solving skills.
