Lakeland Catholic School Division offers a faith-based inclusive Preschool program for children aged 3 and 4 years old. Programs are delivered at our two elementary schools in Cold Lake: St. Dominic Elementary School (Cold Lake North) and Holy Cross Elementary School (Cold Lake South), at École Notre Dame Elementary School in Bonnyville, at Light of Christ Catholic School in Lac La Biche, and at Holy Family Catholic School in Waskatenau. Preschool with a gentle introduction to French is available in some of our schools - please check with your child's Preschool to see if this is an option.
