Welcome to Kindergarten
Selkirk School annually hosts (typically in May) an event for students entering kindergarten the following school year and their families. Students and their parents/families are led among stations where they engage in and learn about various activities that they can do together during the summer before starting school and well into the school year. Each student receives a canvas bag filled with games, materials and books to help make their start to Kindergarten and school a success!
Please watch for this year's Welcome to Kindergarten date in the school calendar on the Home page.
Ready, Set, Learn
Ready, Set, Learn is a provincial initiative for 3-5 year-old designed to provide families with good information about how to support their young child’s early learning, and to help develop positive connections with the school system and local community agencies.
Schools host various play-based early learning events targeted to 3-5 year-old and their families to help influence school readiness. More information about the Ready, Set, Learn initiative is available here on the BC Ministry of Education's website.
