KinderSPARK!

The KinderSPARK! Program is designed to support a smooth and positive transition into Kindergarten. The program is offered to all families with children age four or five who are scheduled to enter Kindergarten next September. Parents attend the twelve-week program with their children once a week for an hour and a half each session. The program runs in late winter and spring, and is held in the majority of elementary schools on the Sunshine Coast.

During the program, families have the opportunity to engage in fun activities designed to support their child’s learning. Families become familiar with the school, and the excitement of visiting the kindergarten room, library, computer lab, gym and playground. Children have the opportunity to meet other children the same age, and to practice working in groups and learning about Kindergarten.

The KinderSPARK! Program represents a partnership between School District No. 46 (Sunshine Coast), Community Schools and Vancouver Coastal Health. Visitors to the program can include the Community Dental Hygienist, a Public Health Nurse, and the School and Community Librarians.

The facilitators of the program are knowledgeable and experienced in Early Childhood Education. Families have the opportunity to ask questions and learn about early child development and the Kindergarten program, and schools have the opportunity to meet the families prior to the first day of school in September

The program is offered free of charge to all families who live on the Sunshine Coast.
