Welcome to Kindergarten Sessions

Welcome to Kindergarten

Spring 2019

The Welcome to Kindergarten Program is designed for parents/caregivers and their children who will be entering kindergarten in September. All thirty-seven Public School Branch schools with Kindergarten organize a Welcome to Kindergarten Program for their incoming students. At the Welcome to Kindergarten Session, families will receive early literacy resources and learn strategies for using these resources with their child at home. The goal of Welcome to Kindergarten is to provide pre-school children with the resources and experiences to begin their formal education with a foundation of literacy nurtured in the home.

The Welcome to Kindergarten Program is a component of a national organization called, The Learning Partnership. The program is run across Canada in conjunction with local school boards and community agencies. On Prince Edward Island, special recognition is given to the Department of Education, Early Learning and Culture for their support of the program. If families would like more information and resources they are encouraged to visit The Learning Partnership’s website at www.thelearningpartnership.ca/WTK

The dates and times for this year’s Welcome to Kindergarten sessions are outlined below. For more information on individual schools in the Public Schools Branch, see our School Information Sheet  (.pdf) or connect to the school’s website through our School Information page.
