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


The Fundraising Committee of the IHMS Board of Trustees released a Parents Survey this past June. The results will help the Fundraising Committee in its role of overseeing the fundraising activities of the school. Thanks to all parents who took the time to respond to the survey and provide their feedback. If you were unable to respond to the survey and would still like to provide your feedback, please provide your comments to the general school email at ihms@ihms.mb.ca. Please be advised that the survey responses have been tabulated and the results will be presented to the IHMS Board of Trustees at an upcoming meeting. The Fundraising Committee will continue to keep you updated regarding future fundraising activities of the school.
