Full Time Kindergarten

IHMS offers a Monday to Friday, full-day Kindergarten program. Kindergarten at IHMS provides a strong academic and social development program with a special concern for the Ukrainian culture, and as well, faith development.
Extensive research indicates full-time Kindergarten has a very positive impact on young learners.
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.
Full day kindergarten is of benefit to families in which both parents are in the workforce.
Contact the School Office to arrange a personal tour of IHMS and hear more about the wonderful programs, see the bright classrooms and meet the friendly school staff.

“Let us be alert and protect ourselves and one another, but especially let us remember that the
best protection from all epidemics is faith in the Lord and acts of love, for when we think about and
strive to help those around us, God Himself looks after us!
May you all live in peace and God’s Grace! May the Lord grant us and all people salvation
and health of soul and body through the prayers of Blessed Josaphata and all the saints.”
Sr. Sofija Lebedowicz, SSMI - General Superior

Annual Fundraisers


Immaculate Heart of Mary School is announcing that the Annual Fund Raising Dinner scheduled for Saturday, March 14, 2020 will be postponed, due to the evolving global situation regarding COVID-19.

This decision has been made in the best interest of the patrons attending the Dinner, the volunteers assisting a the Dinner, and individuals working at the event.

The plan is that the IHMS Fund Raising Dinner will be postponed to a later date in the spring. In the event the Dinner is cancelled, for patrons who have purchased tickets, a full refund will be issued. This is a very extenuating circumstance. We thank you or your understanding. Hang onto your ticket!


Thank you to all who were able to attend and support the Final IHMS Annual Tea. It has been one of the school’s largest community building and fund raising events for many decades. The event is steeped in tradition with generations of students, families, volunteers and patrons supporting the school. The Sister Servants of Mary Immaculate officially opened the last Annual School Tea ... and as well, officially closed the Tea as an annual school event. Looking to the future, other opportunities for community building events and fund raisers will be planned.
