Exciting Beginnings

Registration for kindergarten in all Catholic elementary schools begins in January of each year. Children who will be five years of age as of December 31 of the school year may enter kindergarten in September for the academic year. Children who will be six years of age by December 31 may enter Grade One in September for that academic year.

Our Philosophy

We believe that each child is a unique being who was created by God and is on a lifelong journey back to Him. The journey is a difficult one filled with many challenges. This is why we want our children to receive the best education possible - a balanced education that will:

instill in them high moral and spiritual values
encourage them to reach their full intellectual potential
help them to enjoy the best possible health and emotional well-being
develop in them a keen sense of social responsibility

Our Kindergarten Program

The kindergarten program provides a strong foundation from which the child can continue to be actively involved in learning. The goal of the program is to nurture the development and learning of the whole child. Participation in the kindergarten program can assist children to:

acquire a level of communicative competence
acquire social skills which enable them to relate to adults and other children
develop confidence in themselves
continue to develop to their potential.

Transportation Boundaries

Our school division has established walking and transportation boundaries within the school attendance area for both the English and French Immersion Schools. The established walking boundary around each elementary school is approximately 1.2 km or 3/4 of a mile radius from the school. If a family's home or childcare is within the walking boundary, there is no transportation provided by the school division.

If the family's home or childcare is outside of the walking boundary, transportation will be provided. Each school should have a boundary map indicating the attendance, walking and transportation boundary for your school. Kindergarten Students: Morning kindergarten students ride with the other students on the bus to school in the morning and whenever possible, are accommodated at 11:45 am with a drop off in front of the home or caregiver.

Afternoon kindergarten students are picked up whenever possible in front of the home or caregiver's location and are transported to school for 12:45 pm and at the end of the day are transported home with the other students at 3:30 pm. However, if the student's pickup is in a Bay, Place or small Crescent, a pick up or drop off location at the closest, safest intersection is established. A bus driver is not responsible for the kindergarten students getting across the street or into their home.

However, where possible, the driver waits until the child has gone into the home before leaving. Therefore, parents should meet kindergarten students at their front door, letting the driver know that someone is home with the kindergarten student. The kindergarten teacher distributes kindergarten bus schedules to the families prior to the first day of school.

You can learn more about transportation here. Access to Children First - A Curriculum Guide for Kindergarten published by the Saskatchewan Ministry of Education is available online.​
