Kindergarten Play Area

posted Sep 26, 2016, 7:12 AM by Jeff Chaisson
JK and SK students have a designated protected area where they play while enjoying their outdoor recess breaks. In Halton, kindergarten students, whether JK or SK, do not play outside the kindergarten protected area unless they are taken out for learning activities during classroom time. This practice has now been implemented at RBPS to bring our practices in-line with board expectations. When children arrive in the morning, they can choose to stay with their parent/guardian(s) and play outside the fenced area until the bell rings or they can enter the kindergarten area where staff will be on duty. Once they choose to enter the kindergarten area, they stay in the supervised area. We ask that parent/guardian(s) remain outside the kindergarten area for safety reasons.
