Pre-Primary Program

The Pre-Primary program is voluntary and is open to all children who are at least four years old by December 31st, 2022 and live within school catchment.  Children can only attend the Pre-Primary program for one year.

We are now accepting pre-registration for all sites for the Pre-Primary Program for September 2022. Children who are at least four (4) years old by December 31st, 2022 and live within the school's catchment area are eligible. Parents/guardians will be requested to bring their child's birth certificate, provincial health card to Pre-Primary Orientation once dates and times are announced.

Our Pre-Primary Parent/Guardian Handbook helps to answer some frequent questions about Pre-Primary, and provides information on what your little one's day might look like in the program.  Download a pdf of the Parent-Guardian handbook here.

* Additional Information on Spring Street Academy’s Pre-Primary Program

After many options were explored for Spring Street Academy’s Pre-Primary class, Amherst Regional High School was determined as the best location available.

The Pre-Primary classes will have a dedicated space at the school with a separate and secure entrance for the children. There are other communities within the province with Pre-Primary located within a middle or high school. The current sites with this configuration have experienced welcoming school communities for the younger children from the older students as well as increased learning opportunities for the early childhood studies classes.
