Welcome to Kindergarten

“Welcome To Kindergarten” is an evening designed for both PARENT AND CHILD as a means to help facilitate the transition into your child's first year of school.  The main focus of the evening is to provide parents with the opportunity to develop an understanding of “play based learning”.  Through hands on activities, parents will learn how to play with their child. This meaningful play will better prepare your child for school in September. Teachers will highlight the importance of specific learning activities and parents will then have the opportunity to engage in these activities with their child.  Our hope is that you continue to expose your children to these activities throughout the summer, to help jump start their learning in the Fall.

Our Welcome to Kindergarten event will be followed by a school wide BBQ that you are invited to stay for.

When:   Friday, May 31th, 2019

4:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

School BBQ to follow from 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.

Where:   Holy Redeemer Catholic School

   75 McCurdy Drive

              Kanata, On K2L 3W6



In order to adequately prepare for the evening, we ask that you kindly RSVP confirming your attendance and indicating the number of adults accompanying the child.  Please call the school before Thursday, May 23rd, 2019 at 613-591-3256 to RSVP or email holy.redeemer@ocsb.ca.

This event is for the child entering into JK ONLY (and SK's that are new to the school) and his/her parents. Thank you and hope to see you there.
