The Kindergarten Division at Orangeville Christian School (OCS) includes Junior Kindergarten (JK) and Senior Kindergarten (SK).
We seek to give our students the tools they need to prepare them for the transition to Grade One, while also respecting the unique way God has created young children. Our classrooms are places rich in print, literature, music, art and many hands-on activities. We work to develop an atmosphere in which we follow Jesus’ example of servant-hearted love by growing the social skills needed to become active members of our classroom and school community.
Our Kindergarten is a place of active, playful learning. Our students are introduced to the building blocks of reading through phonemic awareness instruction, guided reading, and authentic writing activities. Numeracy skills are developed through learning with hands-on materials. Through inquiry and instruction in Creation Studies, we point our students’ eyes to our amazing God.
SK TEACHER (BA, BCED, CSTC)
Kim Schenk is a dynamic elementary educator who joins our team with a wide range of teaching experience. She is a wife and mother of four who is passionate about sharing the love of Jesus and developing fundamental life skills, character, and a love for learning in all students under her care. In her spare time, she loves to walk her dog “Copper”, bike, read, garden, and spend time with her family.
I’ve had the immense privilege of working and volunteering with young children of various ages in different settings for over 15 years. Because children are learning and growing at a rapid rate, these early years are a fantastic opportunity to foster their desire to discover themselves and all about God’s world around them. I feel blessed to be a part of the Orangeville Christian School Kindergarten program, and I look forward to providing a rich learning environment full of experiences where our children can learn and grow.
