Our JrK program for 3 and 4 year olds embraces the International Baccalaureate Curriculum – A Gold Standard in Education
Like your preschooler, Aspengrove students are curious – about everything. At Aspengrove School, we help children explore their world. They play. Investigate. Laugh with others. They ask ‘why’ until they really understand and, at the end of the day, they don’t want to leave.

Our International Baccalaureate Programme
Foundation Years: Our journey begins with the Junior Kindergarten 3 programme focusing on several main concepts that build each individual child’s foundation of independence, cooperation, curiosity and confidence.
Learner Profile: Throughout the school year our Junior Kindergarten students are introduced to the Learner Profile attributes: Inquirers, Communicators, Caring, Balanced, Knowledgeable, Principled, Open Minded, Reflective, Risk-takers, and Thinkers.
Specialist Teachers: The Junior Kindergarten 4 programme offers: French, Music & Movement, Jolly Phonics, Art, Drama, Outdoor Education and P.E. Our specialist teachers are introduced to the children as another member of our classroom community. We also participate in the Primary Years Programme weekly school assembly and have opportunities for public speaking throughout the year.
Kindergarten Readiness: When our children set off to our Kindergarten programme, they are more prepared to ask meaningful questions and go deeper into their inquiry. They are familiar with using the language of an IB learner and being able to see themselves as readers and writers. They are equipped with confidence when faced with a conflict and are using appropriate language to find solutions.
