Welcome to Kindergarten

Introducing Our School Community and Learning Spaces

St. Matthew School is a safe place for all. Through our safe arrival and dismissal procedures, attendance program, no nut policy, and all new policies that will be in place in Ontario schools, we will make sure your child’s safety comes first. The Educators and families will have regular communication to keep you informed of your child’s learning, class events and activities and school information. You will receive a Parent Handbook in September that outlines all procedures in your child’s class. We hope that you will find our school community to be an inviting one. We will work together to meet the academic and social goals for your child in a Christ-centred learning environment. We know that a child’s success is enhanced when home and school work closely together through effective communication and co-operation. The Early Learning Kindergarten Team will strive to make this connection between home and school a strong one.
