Young children are proven to benefit from programs that provide opportunities for organized activities and purposeful play through which they can explore the world around them. The kindergarten program focuses on seven areas of learning, including early literacy; early numeracy; citizenship and identity; environment and community awareness; personal and social responsibility; physical skills and well-being; and creative expression.
Our school offers a half-day kindergarten program within a faith-based learning environment. A child who turns five as of December 31 is eligible to attend kindergarten in the fall of that school year. Your child's birth certificate is required at the time of registration. The school will also request you to provide a copy of your child’s or your Catholic baptismal certificate if applicable.
Registration is ongoing - Visit our Kindergarten webpage for more information.
