Students have fun with phonics at Children’s Garden School

The Children’s Garden School year is off to a great start. The JKs are already well into their phonics program, learning their letter sounds and the differences between vowels and consonants. Students add letters as they build their ‘train’, one sound at a time. Vowel ‘cars’ in the train are always coloured red to remind the children that they play a special role in every word. CGS students are working well beyond public school expectations at this grade level. Working with their teachers in small groups allows for focused instruction. Boys, often thought not to enjoy language arts at this stage, thrive in this structured atmosphere.

JK classes for the 2017/18 school year are full but there is space available for the 2018/19 school year. Registration is just around the corner on November 16. Book your tour today to see what CGS can offer your child. Is your child still not adjusting to their SK classroom? Spaces available now. New SK students will start at the beginning of the phonics program and will get the full benefit that JK students receive.
