Welcome to Kindergarten Program (WTK)
The Welcome to Kindergarten (WTK) Program is designed for parents/caregivers and their children who will be entering kindergarten in September. Parents/caregivers of these pre-school children are invited to attend a workshop at their neighbourhood school. Here, they receive early literacy resources as part of the Welcome to Kindergarten Program and learn strategies for using the resources with their child at home.

The goal of WTK is to provide pre-school children with the resources and experiences to begin their formal education with a foundation in literacy nurtured in their home.

This school year, all DDSB elementary schools are participating in the WTK program.
The Welcome to Kindergarten Program is a component of a national organization called The Learning Partnership. The program is run across Canada in conjunction with local school boards and community agencies. For more information and access to parent resources visit the web site:
