Health education

Elementary school health curriculum

The elementary program provides accurate, age-appropriate information and builds upon prior learning.

The curriculum consists of six strands and is taught by the classroom teacher. The six strands taught in Kindergarten are:

Physical activity & nutrition

Diseases

Tobacco, alcohol & other drugs

Family life and maturity

Violence prevention
