Child Care

The Kenora Catholic District School Board strives to ensure that families are well-supported through its shared commitment to well-being and education with our child care partners.

The KCDSB in partnership with licensed child care providers offer care for children from 18 months to 3.8 years in Kenora and 0 to 3.8 years in Red Lake. We currently have three schools that have these programs:

Ecole Ste. Marguerite Bourgeoys: Toddler program and Preschool program (Kenora)

Pope John Paul II School: Toddler program and Preschool program (Kenora)

St. John School: Early Learning Centre (Red Lake)

Our before-and after-school programs are offered for students in Kindergarten to Grade 6.

Families may be eligible for subsidies to help cover the cost of before-and-after school programs. For information on applying for fee subsidies for child care, please visit the Kenora Services Board Website.
