Indigenous Kindergarten/Grade 1 Program

image 2.jpgTh​e Aboriginal Kindergarten - grade one program celebrates the diverse aboriginal cultures in the Comox Valley. We explore aboriginal culture, traditional  values and  wisdom through the First People's Principles of Learning. Local first Nations history, culture and heritage are very important  as well as learning about our own unique backgrounds. The classroom team infuses aboriginal ways of knowing throughout our day in an integrated  theme approach interweaving all of our learning topics. The program has the great advantage of being located at École Puntledge Park School which not only has a salmon stream, it is surrounded by forest.

The Aboriginal K / 1 program has a strong emphasis on  learning from a sense of place, focussing on environmental stewardship through daily outdoor, nature and science learning. Young children learn best by be physically  active with hands-on multi-sensory experiences.​​​
