Getting Ready for Kindergarten Registration

Dec. 01, 2023

Registering your child for school is an exciting milestone for many families! Starting Monday, Jan. 15, 2024, kindergarten registration will be open for the 2024-25 school year. For children to be eligible to register and attend kindergarten next school year, they must turn five years old on or before Dec. 31, 2024.

CBE offers various language and alternative programs in addition to regular kindergarten programming.  We encourage all families to explore the available options and choose the one that best suits their child's needs. To determine which schools your child is designated to, please use the Find a School tool.

When registering your child for school, there are several things you should consider. Our Kindergarten Registration Guide can help answer many of your questions, such as:

  • Documentation to prepare
  • Registration process
  • Transportation services
  • Helpful links

If your child is not a Canadian citizen, there is a specific registration process your family must follow.. Please review our New to Canada page alongside the Kindergarten Registration Guide to ensure you understand the requirements. 

Please contact your designated community school with any questions. We are excited to be a part of your child's learning journey and to welcome you to our schools!
