Exploring our Kindergarten Programs

The word kindergarten comes from a German word that means "children's garden". Kindergarten is a place for your child to grow and learn. We provide a learning environment that focuses on play and inquiry to support your child's development as a confident learner going into grade one. We work with our families to ensure this important first step toward a Catholic education will be a wonderful experience.

We recognize that you appreciate choice in the type of programs to best suit your family. Our division provides a range of programs that may include some or all of the following options:

  • English and French Immersion programming
  • Regular Kindergarten (Half day) - morning or afternoon classes.
  • *Full-day Kindergarten - children attend school full days.
