Flexibility is our mantra! We know that every learner is unique, and connections are as important as curriculum. KDS is ideal for students and parents who want flexibility in scheduling, programming and individualized, project-based learning opportunities. We follow the BC Ministry of Education curriculum, and our teachers work closely with our learner’s families to support and guide the learning that is happening at home.
Teachers work with parents and students at the start of each school year to develop a plan which guides instruction and assessment for the coming school year. Parents work with their children on a daily basis to introduce learning opportunities while KDS teachers guide that process throughout the year, assessing selected work samples and providing feedback. Our blended model also allows opportunities for face to face classroom time, group activities, field trips, and community outings.
Through regular communication, timely feedback and assessment, primary teachers ensure that families know how their student is progressing towards meeting the grade-level learning objectives. KDS primary teachers place an emphasis on supporting the development of strong numeracy and literacy skills for learners in grades K-3.
