Typically at this time of the year, our school hosts Ready, Set, Learn to support three and four year olds in our community. Ready, Set, Learn is about fostering positive connections between families, the school system and local community agencies. As a result of Covid 19, we are unable to facilitate Ready, Set, Learn. In light of this, our District has developed a website called surreyschoolsone.ca that provides parents with activities to support learning at home. It has also provided some activities, resources and a list of community partners you may find helpful. Please see the list of ideas below:
Social Emotional Learning Activities:
Monique Grey Smith – You Hold me Up
Charlotte Diamond – Wash your Hands
Community Partners that are providing virtual learning opportunities:
- Surrey Libraries: Providing storytime from home, fun resources for kids, ebooks and more!
- Surrey Art Gallery: Providing virtual tours of the gallery, online art lessons, and more!
- Child Care Options Resource and Referral: group chats, meditation sessions, and children’s stories and songs via zoom.
- Options-First Steps: support for refugee families, translation and supports for families.
