Register Your Child For School
Children must turn five (5) years old by December 31st the year they enter kindergarten. You can wait one year if you think your child isn’t ready to go to kindergarten at the minimum age of entry.
Welcome to Kindergarten sessions for new students and parents are held at schools in the spring before the next school year. Contact the school board or your child’s school directly for the Welcome to Kindergarten session dates.
How do I register my child for school?
To register your child for school, contact your school directly.
To find out what school zone you live in, contact your nearest Public Schools Branch office or La Commission scolaire de langue française.
If your child is going to a new school, talk about any fears or concerns that your child might have. Call the school and ask for a tour. Help your child find their way around the school and the location of their classroom and washrooms. If possible, meet the teacher and principal.
The school calendar lists the first day of school, holidays, professional learning days and more.
