Learning Expectations


“In the Kindergarten program, four “frames”, or broad areas of learning, are used to structure thinking about learning and assessment. The frames − Belonging and Contributing, Self-Regulation and Well-Being, Demonstrating Literacy and Mathematics Behaviours, and Problem Solving and Innovating − are designed to support an approach that aligns with the way children’s learning naturally occurs and that focuses on aspects of learning that are critical to young children’s development. The frames reflect the integrated way in which learning occurs during children’s play and inquiry in Kindergarten.” (The Kindergarten Program 2016)
