Seamless Day Kindergarten is a Ministry of Education pilot program that provides the opportunity for Kindergarten children to attend child care in the Kindergarten classroom with a team of Early Childhood Educators (ECE) and the classroom teacher. The morning ECE welcomes the children and provides before school learning and care for the children. The ECE remains with the children in the Kindergarten classroom while working collaboratively with the classroom teacher in the design of both program and environment, using the Early Learning Framework as a guide. The afternoon ECE begin their shift mid-day, providing staff overlap and provides after school learning and care. This pilot program is designed to provide students with meaningful relationships, a sense of belonging, and excellent care and learning opportunities with the collaborative gifts of our Early Childhood Educators and Classroom teachers.
The program offers students consistent relationships with the same people and places. Children spend their day in one space, including the school gym and the outdoor environment everyday.
Langley currently has two Seamless Day Programs at Nicomekl and Parkside Centennial Elementary schools. For more information, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
