Full Time Kindergarten

IHMS will offer a Monday to Friday, full-day Kindergarten program beginning in September, 2018. Extensive research indicates this innovative initiative will have a very positive impact on our school community.
National studies show:
Children in all-day kindergarten have better language, social and communication skills.
Students in full-day kindergarten are better prepared to enter Grade 1 and to be more successful in school.
Currently, full-day kindergarten exists in seven provinces and territories across Canada.
Nearly 80 percent of families in our community support the concept of full time kindergarten.
Full day kindergarten (as opposed to alternate days) is of benefit to families in which both parents are in the workforce.

Due to classroom space limitations at this time, IHMS will not be offering a Sadochok program at the 650 Flora Avenue location. IHMS offers pre-­Kindergarten programs through Immaculate Heart of Mary Lubov Nursery School located at 35 Marcie Street. This very successful program has been in operation for nearly 20 years and offers a program with a special concern for the Ukrainian culture, and as well, faith development.
