It’s one of life’s milestones—the first day of kindergarten. And we’re looking forward to welcoming you and your little one into our school community in the fall.
Kindergarten at Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools is a special place where children are encouraged to be the best they can be in a safe, welcoming and faith-filled environment.
Children have daily opportunities to develop and learn socially, emotionally, intellectually, spiritually and physically. Hands-on learning will give early learners the thinking skills they need and a solid foundation for literacy and math. Prayer, the Bible and Gospel values that help little ones learn to love God and others are important parts of Catholic education.
Because of pandemic restrictions, we are not able to welcome you into schools to meet teachers at this time. Elementary schools may be hosting virtual presentations, posting welcome videos, or have virtual tours to let you see classrooms.
Full-day, every-day targeted kindergarten is available at the following schools to support children who would benefit from extra time in class to build important skills in an inclusive, play-based learning environment. Priority will be given to families in the school's catchment area.
Children attending schools in Saskatoon who will be 5 years old on or before January 31, 2022 (birthday January 31, 2017) can register for kindergarten by contacting the school or visiting www.gscs.ca/kindergarten.
Children in Biggar, Humboldt, Martensville and Warman who will be 5 years old on or before December 31, 2021 (birthday December 31, 2016) are eligible to register.
