Webber Academy offers highly sought after Junior and Senior Kindergarten programmes.

 

Junior Kindergarten Admissions

Our Junior Kindergarten (JK) classes run Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., throughout the regular school year. The Junior Kindergarten programme is specifically designed for children turning 4 years old prior to December 31st of the year they will be enrolled in school. Children participate in play-based learning activities which develop their early literacy and numeracy skills and help foster social development. In addition, our Junior Kindergarten students benefit from separate classes in Music, Physical Education and Spanish.

No formal testing is completed for our youngest applicants; however, families who have submitted completed applications will be invited to attend an interview with the Director of Admissions. Junior Kindergarten applicants will also be invited to attend a 'play workshop'. Teachers and administration will be present during the workshop to make observations and determine an applicant’s readiness for our Junior Kindergarten programme. Attributes such as behaviour, language development, willingness to join others at play, participation in activities and social interaction are taken into consideration when making placement decisions. All students attending this assessment will be given priority for available placements.

For applicants to the 2018-19 Junior Kindergarten programme, interviews and class visits will take place from mid-October to early December 2017. We therefore recommend that applications are submitted by the end of October 2017.  Spaces are limited and the date of application is considered, as long as your child meets our admissions criterion. Most decisions on an application are made within two days of the completion of the class visit.  

Children who will not turn 4 before December 31st must apply for the following school year. 

**Please note: The deadline for submitting applications for the 2018-19 Junior Kindergarten Program has been extended from October 31st to November 21st.** 

 

Senior Kindergarten Admissions

Webber Academy has three, full-day, classes of Senior Kindergarten (SK), and is open to candidates turning 5 years old prior to December 31st of the year they will be enrolled in school. These classes run Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. With there being three SK classes, but only two JK classes, we have good availability of placements in our Senior Kindergarten program. 

Applicant families will initially be invited to attend and interview with the Director of Admissions. Following this the children will be invited to the school to complete an assessment pack (with a focus on Math and English skills), and to attend a class visit. The admissions process for SK will likely commence in late 2017, and run through to Spring 2018. Most decisions on an application are made within two days of the completion of the class visit.
