Please remember that even though a 5 day full time Kindergarten is offered in local schools, IT IS NOT MANDATORY FOR CHILDREN TO ATTEND SCHOOLS IN THE PROVINCE OF ONTARIO TILL THE YEAR THEY TURN 6, i.e., Grade 1 IS MANDATORY, Kindergarten (JK or SK) is NOT.,
Things to consider when deciding where would be the most beneficial place for your child to be in September:
- Is my child fully independent in areas of personal care (toileting and hygiene)
- Will he/she eat a complete lunch from home unsupervised in allotted amount of time
- Is my child assertive (re: own needs and self defense)
- Can my child easily deal with transitioning
- Is my child able to take care of own belongings
- Does my child need extra support emotionally and socially
- Does my child adapt independently to new situations and people
Familiar surroundings, lower adult child ratios, continued emotional/physical support, ensuring of good nutritional intake is still needed at this young age.
Remember, your child must be very independent in all areas to benefit fully from Public School programs.

Baldwin Pre-School’s Newsletter
Even though most mornings so far we do not feel that spring is on the calendar, it is still that time of the year when each and every day brings us just a bit closer to the warm and sunny weather that we have been all missing for quite a few months.
We are proud to report that our annual re-licensing inspection by the Ministry of Education took place on December 19th of last year (instead of May) and was completed in less than half a day. Baldwin Pre-School
Baldwin Pre-School Centre : A world of Learning
Centre passed with”flying colours” with a mark of 96.11%. You can check results on the Min of Ed website. Our last Health Inspection was also passed with 100% success
If you have not checked out our new website recently, please do so. It is user friendly and provides a lot of pertinent information for our clients, both present and future.
Most of you are aware of the fact that we fundraise for SickKids Foundation since 2004.
With your help a cheque for $275 was sent to the foundation in February of this year. Baldwin Pre-School Centre matches parents’ donations given on the days of our school concerts.
Seasonal clothing must be available for all children to participate in daily outdoor activities.
Please assure that your child also has a full set of spare clothes to be available in case of spills and other accidents.
Sunscreen is recommended for every child starting in May. The morning application of the sunscreen should take place at home. It will save us valuable time in the morning. We prefer to have kids play outside those extra 15-20 minutes instead.
