My children were enrolled at Childventures for 4 years. We chose CV’s JK/SK program over the public or other private sector because the class sizes are smaller, the strong reading program and advanced curriculum content.
After completing the JK/SK program their transitions to public school were smooth. I felt both my children had a strong basis to make it an easier transition for Grade 1 French.
Both our CV grads have performed very well once they started Grade 1 and have continued to do so. A strong JK/SK program must have influenced their success. Both children are at the top of their class.
This social aspect was my biggest concern about keeping my children at CV. However, with time they made friends in Grade 1 and have no social inhibitions. It was a bit tougher for one child over the other but after a couple of months all was great.
Both children had a strong educational basis that allowed them to be successful into the elementary school environment. I strongly believe they were better prepared than students coming from the elementary kindergarten program.
If you can, I highly recommend it.
