Updated April 15, 2021 –

We offer Kindergarten at nine of our community schools. French Immersion Kindergarten is available at our Barrhead and Westlock elementary schools. Every spring our schools host special events to welcome new Kindergarten students and their parents to Kindergarten.

What happens in Kindergarten?
Children explore and learn about the world through play. In Kindergarten your child will discover reading, math, physical education, art and music in preparation for a life of learning.

Who can register for Kindergarten?
Children who will be 5 by December 31.

What do I need to register?
Your child’s birth certificate or proof of citizenship (Passport or Visa). Your child must be 5 by December 31, 2020 to start Kindergarten for the 2021-2022 school year.

A detailed land location or rural address. We need this to confirm you are registering at the right school and to begin planning for busing.
