The English Montreal School Board will welcome 13 new Pre-Kindergarten classes funded by the Ministry of Education.

Set to receive new Pre-K classes for the 2019-2020 academic year will be: Sinclair Laird in Park Extension (1), Parkdale in St. Laurent (2), General Vanier in St. Leonard (1), Dalkeith in Anjou (1), Westmount Park (3), Gerald McShane in Montreal North (1), Coronation in Côte des Neiges (1), Mackay Centre/Philip E. Layton in NDG (1), Pierre Elliott Trudeau in Rosemount (1) and Bancroft in the Plateau (1). The conditions and criteria considered when making theses selections were the  poverty index, schools with existing half-day Pre-K’s and available space and  teachers.    

At the present time the EMSB has 12 Ministry funded Pre-Ks, including four of the aforementioned schools: Gerald McShane (2), Pierre Elliott Trudeau (2), Bancroft  (2) and  Coronation (1). The list also is composed of Nesbitt in Rosemount (1), John Caboto  (1) and Our Lady of Pompei (1) in Ahuntsic, St. Dorothy (1) in St. Michel and St. Gabriel (1) in Pointe St. Charles.  

“We are pleased for the new schools that we have been able to add to our list of offering Pre-K for four year olds,” said EMSB Chair Angela Mancini.  “Our educators are doing a wonderful job welcoming these young children to our system. It is just important that we maintain some control of where these classes are added in the coming years. It is no secret that we have significant space problems in our West End schools.”
