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 (for eligible children) 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.
