Kindergarten classrooms are fostered within faith-filled learning environments, framed around the pillars of Discipleship, Scholarship and Stewardship, ensuring our students’ well-being as they are supported and guided in their faith formation. Your child can begin Kindergarten in September of that calendar year during which your child becomes four years of age. To register, please visit your local school, or call to set up an appointment.
Our Full Day Kindergarten in the ALCDSB focuses on faith formation, academic success and programs for children with special needs, all within a play-based learning environment. Teachers and Early Childhood Educators work together to develop your child’s natural curiosity and excitement for learning. Our schools ensure a caring and safe environment for your children, all while staying committed to the use of advanced technology in the classroom.
