Our KCS Elementary School provides a safe, nurturing environment where learning is exciting, positive and encouraging. Through fun and engaging challenges, students are encouraged to explore the foundational skills of literacy and numeracy through individualized and project-based learning. Our classes are led by gifted Christian teachers who genuinely care and uphold strong Christian values.
KCS believes in an innovative and holistic approach to education. We work together with families to help each child grow academically, socially and spiritually. It truly takes a village to raise a child and we feel privileged to join you on the journey. We love and care deeply for all our students!
STRONG LITERACY PROGRAM
Nurturing and supportive teachers maintain high expectations for students. Partnering with our Learning Support Teacher, Dori Vinton, our elementary teachers seek to teach each child at their level of readiness and encourage them to step out of their comfort zone to grow and develop a love for learning. Coupled with innovative instructional activities and project-based learning strategies, our advanced literacy program lead to strong academic development. In fact, results show that our students read at least a ½ grade level higher than the grade in which they are enrolled.
Early literacy programs begin in Preschool at Kelowna Christian School. Learning Centres host play experiences that facilitate all areas of development, as well as directed teaching in literacy, numeracy and fine motors. Learn more about our Preschool program here.
COMMUNITY + CONNECTION
At KCS we believe that developing strong relationships among teachers, parents and students is vital and will ultimately shape their education. These relationships are formed by respect, love, positive examples, honesty, responsibility, guidance and forgiveness. All this is summed up by our "Me-Third" philosophy.
Community is foundational to our school. Teachers, staff, parents and students are intentional about creating and participating in activities and programs that focus on fostering relationships and service within our school, city and global community. We raise funds for projects, collect shoes for the needy, serve other students, and visit our friendly elders at Mountainview Residential Care Village. Learn more below. Our lovable Class Moms and Parents In Action committee play a huge role helping make real world connections for our students in our local and global community.
Relationship and mentorship is very important in our school. We seek to build community, not only with our peer group, but also with “big buddies” in other grades at the Elementary campus. We also pursue and value strong teacher-student and parent-teacher connections.
We love to create opportunities to foster and develop loving, caring and Christian character in our students. Our Me-Third philosophy influences every aspect of our elementary school community. We teach and remind students to place everything under the umbrella of God first, others second and “Me-Third”. Through this approach, our students have grown to respect others, build honouring friendships and a love for serving our community.
