"Your children will feel accepted and supported and will thrive socially in a caring atmosphere."

The word 'Kindergarten' comes from a German word meaning "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 1. 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 that best suit your family. 

We offer both English and French Immersion programs. 

There are 3 programming choices:

  • regular (half-day) - each school has a morning option, and depending on enrolment, afternoon classes may be offered.
  • full-day - children attend Kindergarten in both the morning and the afternoon. This is a program of choice, and fees apply. Some schools offer this programming; it is dependent upon sufficient enrolment.
  • progressive - children attend half-days until spring break, after which they transition to full-days. This is a program of choice, and fees apply. Some schools offer this programming; it is dependent upon sufficient enrolment.
