The Mini départ Program: Off to a smooth start to school!
Since starting kindergarten is an important milestone in the lives of children and their families, Csc Providence is pleased to announce the launch of its new Mini départ Program for children who will be entering kindergarten in September 2021. The objective of the program is to expose children aged four and five to a wide range of solid foundational learning activities that will ensure a successful entry into kindergarten.
This free three-week program will be offered virtually as shown below:
Week 1: June 15-19
Week 2: July 13-17
Week 3: August 10-14
Presented through 15-30 minute webinars, the activities will take place on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, on the half-hour, from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. The virtual activities allow future kindergarten students to develop a sense of well-being and of belonging to their school while also strengthening connections that will later facilitate their school careers.
In addition, as part of this program, Conseil scolaire catholique Providence will offer parents webinars to provide them with guidance to help their children feel comfortable and confident as they embark on this important step.
Families who have opted to enrol their children in a French-language Catholic school will automatically receive the link to the Mini départ Program.
Families wishing to enrol their children in a Csc Providence school can apply online at any time to participate in the Mini départ Program activities.
