Children will go home with a resource bag that includes pencils, crayons, scissors, glue, magnetic numbers/ letters, playdough and three beautiful books. Teachers will work with families to show them how to make the best use of the resources. As well, children and their families have the opportunity to meet school staff, parents and community partners and be welcomed to the school.

Welcome to Kindergarten Programs run across Canada and are sponsored by the Learning Partnership in conjunction with school districts. Most Vancouver school’s host a WTK session in May or June.

The sessions run about 1 ½- 2 hours. Please contact your neighbourhood school for event dates.
