All children who will be five years old by December 31, 2021 (children born in 2016) are eligible for the Kindergarten program beginning September 7, 2021. Registration for Kindergarten will take place on the third Monday in January of the year for which the child is eligible.
Registration has closed for guaranteed placement. If you are wanting to register your child please send/or bring into the office the completed forms and the school will do its best to keep students in their catchment schools but cannot guarantee it.
All registration takes place at the neighbourhood school level (with the exception of the new elementary in SW Yorkson). Due to COVID-19 health and safety guidelines, the process for registration and collecting documents may be different this time.
Registration is not available at the School Board Office and/or during spring break.
Documents Required for the Registration Process
Proper documentation is essential. Please note, registration may be delayed if the required documentation is not provided.
- Proof of age (Birth Certificate)
- Proof of Canadian Citizenship or Permanent Resident Status must be provided for both student and parent (Canadian Birth Certificate, Canadian Passport, Canadian Citizenship Card, Landed Immigrant documentation, Permanent Resident documentation/cards)
- Proof of residence (mortgage papers, Property Tax Notice, BC Driver’s Licence, subject-free purchase agreement [less than 6 month move-in date], utility bill)
