Pre - Kindergarten

Dear Parents and Guardians, thank you for your feedback on the two surveys that were sent out specifically on Pre-Kindergarten at Madonna.


Please note, I regret to tell you that Madonna Catholic School will NOT be offering a Pre-Kindergarten Program for the next school year. The majority of the community indicated that the costs were too high.


We still need to determine, direction for our Brighter Beginnings Program. Once the budget from Alberta Education is known AND a model of delivery determined, we will contact our Brighter Beginnings parents promptly.
