Full-Day Kindergarten has been fully implemented into all Ontario elementary schools as of September 2014
Full-Day Kindergarten for four-and-five-year-olds will run every day from 9:00 am - 3:30 pm. A qualified Teacher and a registered Early Childhood Educator will work together as an educator team to deliver the Early Learning Kindergarten Program. The average class size will be 26 students, with a pupil-to-adult ratio of 13:1.
Assuming sufficient interest, a Before and After School Program may be offered at each Catholic elementary school. Program times are tentatively set at 7:30 am - 9:00 am and 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm during the months of September to the end of June.
A child may be enrolled in one or both parts of the Before and After School Program. Parents will pay a per day fee for the before and/or after school portion. Subsidized spaces will be available according to financial need and eligibility. The District of Thunder Bay Social Services Administration Board administers the subsidies for the programRegister Today
Frequently Asked Questions
The school principal will discuss attendance options with you.
According to our Board’s Transportation Policy:
- Yes: If your child resides in the school zone and attends the school component but not the before and after school component of the program.
- No: If your child attends the FDK from outside the school zone. Where children participate in the before and after school program, parents will be responsible for transportation.
Programs will be offered at Holy Cross School, St. Ann School, St. Paul School, Holy Family School, St. Bernard School, St. Pius X School, Our Lady of Charity School, St. Martin School and St. Vincent School.
If there is sufficient interest, our Board will endeavour to engage the services of a local child care provider to
offer a before and after school program in other Catholic Elementary Schools that presently do not offer such
programs. Parents will be charged a competitive fee for the service. Please complete the Statement of Interest
for a Before and After School Program and return it to the school with your child’s registration. Any additional
schools offering the before and after school program in September 2017 will be announced at a later date.
$35.00 per day for the before and after school program.
