Early Years (Kindergarten)

Welcome to DDSB@Home Early Years. We are excited to welcome over 2700 kindergarten students to our campus from across Durham Region! Our school has 94 amazing classrooms with highly certified Teachers and Early Childhood Educators, 2 Special Education Teachers, 8 Coverage teachers, and 4 Educational Assistants, all ready to engage and teach in a virtual learning environment.  

I am Tamara Turpin and I am proud to be your Principal for DDSB@Home Early Year.  Our Vice Principal, Toufan Arieb, is also excited to be on this learning journey with all of you. Along with the educators and ECEs we are all committed to provide your child with a virtual learning experience that aligns it’s priorities with those of the DDSB

Supporting Our Youngest Learners

The Ministry has mandated 180 minutes of Real Time learning for Kindergarten students.  This is a goal we will work to attain.  We understand that each child has individual needs and we will be working with families to accommodate those needs.  Please reach out to your teachers to discuss any concerns you may have, we are here to support your child.  Educators are working hard to create a welcoming and engaging environment for their students.  Your feedback is important to us as it will help us find new ways to create new and creative ways to bring the kindergarten program to life in a virtual world.  We thank you for your patience as well all learn together.

As promised we will communicate to our families each week to ensure you are informed on school events. Your feedback is important to us. Please do not hesitate to email us in the Contact Us link below.
