The Sudbury Catholic District School Board has been pleased to offer full day Kindergarten in all of its elementary schools since September 2010.  The Board has also implemented The Full-Day Early Learning Kindergarten Program (FDK) classes in all elementary schools. The Sudbury Catholic District School Board was the first English school system in the province to announce full-day junior kindergarten.

2016 Kindergarten Information and Registration Night

The Sudbury Catholic District School Board had its Full Day Kindergarten Registration and Information sessions on Thursday, January 21, 2016. These Information sessions are available for parents wanting to register their child(ren) for school beginning September 2016 (For children turning 4 years of age on or before December 31, 2016). If you were unable to attend these sessions, we encourage you to contact your school to register on an alternative date. Both regular (English) and French Immersion programming is available.
