Welcome! Let's Get to Know One Another!
Each school has a unique transition plan so that children and families have an opportunity to meet the educator teams, meet their new friends, and tour their new school. Contact your school directly or visit their website and/or Facebook page to learn more about school visits, for children transitioning to one of our schools.
Reducing stress for children and families so children feel comfortable and safe to come to school is a priority for us. It is when children feel safe and secure that they will be excited and ready for learning.

Childcare Opportunities: The Northwest Catholic District School Board
Strong Partnerships, Shared Commitment, and Seamless Transitions
In partnership with our local service providers, The Northwest Catholic District School Board offers high-quality programs that impact children's development. Our childcare and Kindergarten programs are tailored to children's development; value children as creative, active learners; and celebrate diversity, equity, and inclusion.
"Every experience in a child's early life has an impact on his/her development now and in the future. Parents and families are the first
and most powerful influence on children's early learning and development.
Young children and their families live in communities that shape early experiences." (ELECT, p.4)
