An independent co-ed IB school (JK to Grade 12) in North Vancouver, Canada

Junior Kindergarten Program

The Junior Kindergarten Program is open to children who will be 4 years of age by December 31st. Brockton School’s Junior Kindergarten Programme is completely unique from any other Pre-Kindergarten Program on the North Shore and surrounding areas.


Brockton is unique.
Our (JK-Grade 12) school environment is truly authentic. We are a small, highly-respected independent (ISABC) school with an outstanding staff that cares about each individual student and about professional “best practice.” We know how to listen, we honour each child’s individuality and we differentiate teaching strategies to meet the specific needs of each learner. 

Brockton is inclusive.
Brockton is welcoming to a diverse population and values contributions from everyone in its school community.

Brockton understands how children learn.
At Brockton, we value the roles of inquiry, “hands on” challenges and play in every learner’s experience. 

Brockton embraces the International Baccalaureate philosophy which allows strong early years teachers to make learning concrete and tangible such that it suits the developmental ages and stages of each Junior Kindergarten student. Teachers work within the framework of the IB Early Years Programme, while being responsive to the children’s interests.The goal is to have the children become active participants in their own learning. Among other innovative strategies, Brockton School has introduced three threads that are maximized to weave the children’s ideas and learning into the larger IB curriculum.


These three threads are: 

1. Outdoor Education
The children are expected to be dressed for the weather so that they can have full access to our outdoor education curriculum. Making generous use of our garden, campus and near-by forest allows each child to stretch his/her thinking through connections with the environment.

2. Photography
Each child is provided with a camera that belongs to him/her for the whole year. The students are free to capture what they see and, what they find interesting at school. These photographs are used to drive the children’s inquiry to connect their learning to the IB learner profile, concepts, attitudes and skills.

3. Intergenerational Learning
Our Programme partners with expert seniors from our community. Seniors are engaged at specific times, to be a part of the students’ learning both inside and outside of the classroom.
