Full Time Kindergarten

IHMS now offers a Monday to Friday, full-day Kindergarten program. Extensive research indicates this innovative initiative 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.
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 does not offer 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.

Annual Fundraisers


We invite you to support the upcoming Immaculate Heart Mary School - Annual Fund Raising Dinner on Saturday, March 9, 2019 at the Holy Eucharist Parish Centre. This event raises dollars that are critically needed to enhance the educational needs of our students.

The Fund Raising Dinner is a wonderful evening that this year will have a little extra ‘storybook flavour’!
Music, hors d’oeurvres, cocktails and a spectacular meal catered by Bergmanns on Lombard. There will also be wine, fabulous prizes as well as a silent auction room.

This year there will be a special feature of 'Dancing With the Stars' with notable people from our school community! It’s an evening you don’t want to miss!

Individual tickets are available for $125 with a $50 tax receipt. Tickets are available at the Immaculate Heart of Mary School Office (204-582-5698), or online at:

Thank you to all the supporters and volunteers for your support of another successful School Tea. The generosity of time, talent and resources you have shared is very much appreciated.
Although the weather was cold on the day of the Tea the hospitality was warm and the tea was hot!
