In Ontario, the Kindergarten program is made up of four “frames”, or broad areas of learning. This frame captures children’s learning and development with respect to:
- exploring the world through natural curiosity, in ways that engage the mind, the senses and the body;
- making meaning of their world by asking questions, testing theories, solving problems and engaging in creative and analytical thinking;
- the innovative ways of thinking about and doing things that arise naturally with an active curiosity, and applying those ideas in relationships with others, with materials and with the environment.
