Kindergarten Plus+ and Full-Time Kindergarten

lcsd-kindergarten

We encourage you and your child to visit our Kindergarten programs and tour our schools prior to your child beginning school.

Lloydminster Catholic School Division has expanded regular English and French Immersion Kindergarten programming to 60% from 50%.  This expanded program, known as Kindergarten Plus+, is offered in Father Gorman Community School, St. Mary's Elementary School, St. Joseph Elementary School and École St. Thomas.  This allows for a schedule of three consistent full days a week. The added time includes small groups of students working with teachers to further develop their pre-literacy and numeracy skills. Each program is parallel, focusing on the physical, emotional, intellectual, social, and spiritual needs of your child. Your child will be exposed to a multitude of activities that promote individual growth and development.

Mother Teresa Early Childhood Education Center provides parents with the opportunity to register their child in city-wide full time Kindergarten programming.  This full time Kindergarten program is only offered at Mother Teresa Early Childhood Education Center.  The program is paralleled to Kindergarten Plus+, with additional time to further enhance student skills.

We see Kindergarten as a key phase in your child’s development. Therefore, we encourage you and your child to visit our Kindergarten programs and tour our schools prior to your child beginning school. Children who are five (5) years of age as of February 28 of the current school year shall be admitted to Kindergarten.

Modified Academic Courses

Students in Grade 10, 11 and 12 can enroll in modified courses in the areas of English, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies. These courses follow Ministry of Education's guidelines for courses leveled as 11, 21, 31 and count towards meeting graduation requirements.

High School Alternate Education Program

The Alternative Education Program is designed to provide students with a life skills based program. The Saskatchewan Alternative Education Curriculum Guidelines are followed, and upon completion, students receive a Certificate from Ministry of Education.

Language Instruction & EAL

Our school division offers French Immersion programming from Kindergarten to grade 12. École St. Thomas is a single-track elementary French Immersion school. When students complete grade 7 at École St. Thomas, they move to Holy Rosary High School, a dual-track French Immersion/English high school. It is highly recommended that students begin their French Immersion journey in Kindergarten or grade 1, but there are programs in place to allow students to gain late-entry into French Immersion.

St. Joseph Elementary School, St. Mary's Elementary School and Father Gorman Community School offer an Intensive French program to students in grade 6, where students take the majority of their courses in French for the first half of the year and receive follow-up in the following semester and future years.
