Half-day K offered

One Mission school is offering an alternative to all-day kindergarten classes.

For the 2011/2012 year, all public schools across B.C. will be offering only full day kindergarten. However, the Ministry of Education has granted independent schools, including Mission’s Valley Christian School (VCS), the opportunity to offer half-time kindergarten or full-time kindergarten this September.

The school offers preschool to Grade 9 classes as well as a home school program. This faith-based school provides an innovative, learner-focused environment with strong academics.
