REGISTERING FOR KINDERGARTEN!
Welcome to Kindergarten
Starting Kindergarten is an exciting and special time for parents and children. Our entire Catholic school community looks forward to welcoming our youngest students as they begin a lifelong journey of faith-filled learning. We believe there is something truly unique and special about learning that is rooted in faith and spiritual growth. By choosing a faith-filled education, we know you will share that belief with us.
Full Day Learning
Research shows that children who participate in full day Kindergarten get a solid foundation for future learning. We know that young children are competent and quite capable of complex thinking. They are also curious and full of potential. That is why full day learning at the Kindergarten level is so beneficial.
The Kindergarten program offered at all the schools in our board provides children with a strong start for their learning journey. The program is structured to help make the transition to Grade 1 easier for both you and your child. And by spending a full day learning through play, your child will develop the academic and social skills necessary for future success.
What is Play-Based Learning?
Your child’s teacher and early childhood educator are guided by an Ontario curriculum document, which encourages play-based learning. The focus will be on using play to develop a strong foundation for learning in all areas, including language and math, the arts and physical activity. This approach also helps your child to develop socially and emotionally through interaction with their peers and the educators who guide them.
Registration Packages are available in the office.
