Welcome to Kindergarten at Hume

September gradual entry 2021 schedule.pdf

Welcome to Hume School!

Here is a welcome message from the Kindergarten Teachers and Principal (click on the link to view the slideshow)

We have included the Kindergarten gradual entry schedule for September, 2021 in the above link.  

Usually the kindergarten students begin school on a gradual entry schedule which means they will attend on a part-time basis over a period of three weeks, gradually increasing the time they spend with us. This gentle introduction to Kindergarten builds a solid foundation for school life by allowing children to adjust to their new environment, teacher and peers in a shorter school session. Introducing children to classroom routines and procedures gradually eases the transition for children so they feel comfortable and valued as new members of our school community. This also allows time for each family to meet with the teachers to share important information about their child and to build positive relationships between home and school.   

Hume School students do not need to buy school supplies. Instead we ask that parents pay a kindergarten fee of $40 for the school supplies used throughout the year.  We will issue you an invoice and these fees can be paid at the office by the end of September. You will need to provide a backpack, inside shoes (running shoes with non-marking soles are best as they will be used in the gym) and good outside clothing as we do spend part of each day outside.  

We always welcome your questions and comments. Feel free to contact us at the school at 250-352-3186 or via the email addresses listed below. 

Please note:  We are going ahead to plan for a regular school year opening including a welcoming tea during the first week of school.  If the restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic continues, we will inform you as soon as we can regarding changes to this schedule and to the safety protocols at school.  We thank you for your patience and flexibility.  

 

With thanks from your Kindergarten teachers,
