Come Prepared to Play!

The world is a big, wondrous place, and young children are only beginning to explore it. Going to school for the first time is a major step in their journey of exploration.

Kindergarten also represents a big change for parents as well as children. On Thursday, February 2, between 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m., parents and children will have an opportunity to see their new school, ask questions and find out how DSBN schools support students’ education and positive growth at the annual Kindergarten Open Houses. All DSBN schools that offer Kindergarten programs will be hosting open houses.

“Kindergarten at the DSBN is a wonderful place to be. Young children are active, curious learners who need space, different materials and time to try out their ideas, gain experience and expand their learning. Our programs offer them a variety of play-based and academic experiences to challenge and delight them,” says JoAnna Roberto, Superintendent of Curriculum and Student Achievement.

“In Kindergarten, students will also develop a strong foundation with the skills, knowledge and positive attitude necessary for lifelong learning,” adds Roberto.

At the Kindergarten Open Houses, parents will be able to meet the staff, school administration and register their children for school. Registration takes just a few minutes; those interested should bring their child’s birth certificate, immunization record and proof of address.
