Forest Grove Early Learning School

Children Attending Junior and Senior Kindergarten

Oakville preschool programs - jk & skHalton's Public and Separate school boards offer optional Junior and Senior Kindergarten programs. Forest Grove offers a superior alternative to Halton's JK/SK programs. Forest Grove's curriculum not only incorporates all the components of the Ontario Ministry of Education Kindergarten Curriculum, but far exceeds the standards created by the Ontario Ministry of Education. Therefore, from an academic perspective, by attending Forest Grove's superior programs, your children will be far more prepared for entry into the school system at the grade 1 level.
