Welcome to Kindergarten



  • Welcome to School in blocks

Laureen, Queen's Square | May 2, 2018

Starting school is a very exciting time for children. It can be a bit stressful too. Idea Exchange is here to help with that. Kindergarten Bootcamp is a school readiness program where children will learn to follow routines, practice fine motor skills, take turns and share, learn letters and sounds, listen to stories, make friends and more. It is offered in the summer at all of our locations. See all of our summer programs here. We’ve got books about starting school too.

Registration for Kindergarten is available online for both the Waterloo Region District School Board and the Waterloo Catholic District School Board. Schools also offer a Welcome to Kindergarten Night so that families can visit the school and learn more about what to expect in September. Find out if your school will be hosting one of these fun nights this spring – see you there!
