Half or Full Day Junior Kindergarten 

Canterbury Community Nursery School has been preparing children for Kindergarten and beyond since 1978. We were thrilled to add another educational layer to its program in 2015. We added a full day Junior Kindergarten to are already established half day program.  This is a wonderful opportunity for children who need the gift of time to develop physically, socially and academically prior to entering Kindergarten.

The goal of our Junior Kindergarten is to help 4 and 5-year olds bridge the gap between pre-school and Kindergarten while allowing them to spend more time immersed in the Junior Kindergarten experience. This program is taught with the time-honored tradition of our classical Open-Time and STEAM curriculum and while allowing extra time to build on Kindergarten readiness skills making the entrance into Kindergarten seamless and consistent.

We are confident this program will strengthen and hone skills, which are essential in order to absorb and express ideas, become more independent, and be fully prepared for the academic years ahead.
