The Calgary Catholic School District offers kindergarten programming within a faith-based learning environment.

Parents and children will experience a Catholic educational setting which focuses on:

  • Creating a school community that gives witness to the teaching of Jesus and celebrates diversity, inclusion and the permeation of Catholic values throughout all curricular areas.
  • Children being valued as precious gifts of God who are encouraged to reach their fullest potential.
  • Learning experiences designed to be developmentally appropriate in order to meet the diverse needs of children.


Kindergarten Registration
Registration is ongoing throughout the school year. A child who turns four years old on or before March 1 is eligible to attend kindergarten in the fall of that same calendar year. The child’s birth certificate should be presented at the time of registration. Contact your local elementary school for more information.

Kindergarten programming

Young children benefit from programs that provide opportunities for organized activities and purposeful play through which children explore the world around them. Alberta Education defines instructional time for kindergarten as the “time where direct child-teacher interaction and supervision are maintained.”

Kindergarten students are provided with a minimum of 475 instructional hours each school year. The following 10 guiding principles provide a framework for kindergarten programming:

  1. Childhoods differ depending on social and cultural circumstances
  2. Children’s development is influenced but not determined by their early experiences
  3. Children interact and learn in a variety of contexts
  4. Children are co-constructors of knowledge and partners in learning
  5. Children are unique and active contributors to their learning
  6. Children construct and represent knowledge in a variety of ways
  7. Children are citizens and active participants in school and society
  8. Children are active collaborators in and users of assessment
  9. Children may require specialized programming and supports to develop knowledge, skills and attitudes that prepare them for later learning
  10. Children and their families may need coordinated community services to meet their needs.

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.

St Cyril School offers two programs: AM Kindergarten from 8:50 am to 11:39 am and a PM Kindergarten program from 12:36 pm to 3:15 pm. Please inquire about available space at our main office. Registration for kindergarten is ongoing.
