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 March 14, 2020 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 ‘gaming fun’! The theme for the Dinner is GAME ON - an entertaining night featuring a twist on vintage board games and classic TV game shows! There will be delicious hors d’oeurvres, cocktails and a spectacular meal catered by Bergmann’s on Lombard. There will also be wine, fabulous prizes, as well as, a silent auction room. It’s an evening you don’t want to miss!


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.
