Welcome to Kindergarten 2020


We would like to welcome you to Divine Mercy Catholic Elementary School. At York Catholic District School Board, we are dedicated to ensuring the development of the whole child – spiritually, socially, emotionally, physically and academically. We are honoured that you are choosing one of our Catholic schools and we look forward to working with you.

The Kindergarten Program is a two-year program for four-and five-year old children. The program provides opportunities for children to further develop oral language skills, engage in real-life experiences to help them make connections to prior knowledge and further develop self regulation skills and strategies. Explicit instruction in literacy, mathematics and religion occurs during focused learning time and during play-based learning blocks. Catholic education is integrated throughout the kindergarten program in a child-centred, developmentally appropriate way. Opportunities are provided for students to actively engage in conversation, ask and answer questions, use key vocabulary, and connect to their own experiences.  

The school day begins at 8:50 am. and ends at 3:40 pm. Divine Mercy CES is a uniform school. DGN Kilters is the uniform provider for the Divine Mercy school community. Divine Mercy CES offers a Before and After School Program.
