Kindergarten at St. Nicholas Catholic School is a faith filled program that nurtures your child’s sense of well being and belonging to a caring, compassionate learning community.
Independence, initiative, decision making, creativity, the ability to learn, relationships and feelings of self-worth - all have their beginnings in early childhood. We believe that each child is unique and, together with parents as our partners, we build upon children's natural curiosity and spontaneity, encouraging and supporting them as they take their first step into school.
Children will explore nature, people, places, and objects as well as print, stories, numbers, shapes, and patterns. Through this they will develop a sense of being together, communication, early literacy, physical skills and well being, personal and social responsibility, Mathematics, as they will explore their environment and community.
St. Nicholas is proud to offer both English & Ukrainian Bilingual Kindergarten Programs. For more information about our Ukrainian Bilingual Program, please visit our "Ukrainian Bilingual" page (in our Program Section).
