With a child-centered focus on play, discovery, and love, Sacred Heart’s Junior Primary program for four-year-olds is renowned for preparing little ones for Primary and beyond. Here, play is encouraged, yet purposeful, where structured learning is enriching, exciting, and fun. Our classes are small and our early childhood educators are intentional in their balance between child- and teacher-directed learning. With specialists in French, Music, and Physical Education, we very carefully nurture the best in your child, while laying the foundation for intellectual, physical, social-emotional, and spiritual growth.

An integral part of the Sacred Heart community, JP’s enjoy the use of our theatre, lunch room, library, two gyms, and a state-of-the-art playground. They also delight in weekly gatherings with our Grade 4 Reading Buddies, regular visits from our Senior School volunteers, and participation in the internationally recognized Roots of Empathy program. Snacks are provided. A hot lunch program and seamless transition into our After School Program are both available at an additional cost.
“Our daughter feels valued, cared for and loved. School has become an extension of home.”
