Why parents choose Fieldstone for Kindergarten:

- Individualized Approach to Education
Fieldstone is a place where all learners can excel. Our small class sizes and individualized approach ensures that every child is being challenged. We believe that young children have an incredible capacity to learn and it is our task to make the most of this formative time in their development. The Cambridge Primary Programme begins in Kindergarten, Stage 1, in the Maths, Sciences and English. Through an active learning approach, students learn the fundamentals in these subject areas providing a strong foundation for future years. Our students begin the study of Music through our Orff programme, where children learn music in an authentic and hands-on way, and begin learning French. With gifted education support and advanced level programming, every student is challenged as an individual.
The Cambridge Primary Programme
Cambridge Primary is an education programme for young learners that combines a world-class curriculum, high-quality support for teachers and integrated assessment. There are over 10,000 Cambridge Schools in 160 countries worldwide and we are proud to be Canada’s premier Cambridge School. The Cambridge programme begins with Stage One, Kindergarten, Cambridge Primary, and culminates with Cambridge A Levels, one of the world’s most recognized and respected secondary school qualifications. The Cambridge approach supports schools to develop learners who are confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged.
Cambridge ICT Starters
Cambridge Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Starters, is a programme for 5 to 11 year olds to learn this new ‘literacy’ alongside reading, writing and numeracy. Through this programme, students learn ICT competence and practical skills in an environment that is age appropriate. Our youngest learners learn how to navigate the keyboard and use simple software applications in our fun and engaging approach to ICT.
House System and Character Education
The Fieldstone Houses, Fox, Richler, Peterson and Carr, form a community within a community. Our Kindergarten students meet with their houses, which are made up of students from JK all the way to Grade Eight, every morning for house activity and character education exercises. Our youngest students have an opportunity to get to know every student in the Fieldstone community and our older students serve as role models to our new members. It is through student interactions such as these that makes Fieldstone such a rich environment for learning.
