Junior Kindergarten will be implemented at YK1 schools for the 2017-2018 school year and will follow the NWT Integrated Junior Kindergarten/ Kindergarten Curriculum. The curriculum is child-centered and play-based, which allows children to be actively involved in the learning process and helps them construct a deeper understanding of the world around them. Range Lake North School, Mildred Hall School, École J.H. Sissons and NJ Macpherson School will all be hosting Open House nights in February to provide information on their Junior Kindergarten and Kindergarten programs. Parents and children can take a tour of the school, and chat with the Principals, teachers and school staff.
