Kindergarten Registration

We're delighted that you have chosen to join the Wellington Catholic District School Board family.
We are committed to places of learning that are safe, caring and inclusive. Our Catholic schools are founded on a commitment to high standards for achievement, the faith formation of our students and the care for the holistic needs of your child: body, mind spirit. We are a community that inspires excellence. Our staff look forward to working with your child to ignite the divine spark, natural curiosity, and the God-given strengths in each one of them.

The Kindergarten program is a two ­year experience that builds community and provides rich and inclusive learning for all children. The purpose of the program is to establish a strong foundation for learning in the early years, and to do so in a safe and caring play ­based learning environment. It is designed to help children build on their prior knowledge and experiences, form concepts, acquire foundational skills, and form positive attitudes towards learning. In addition, it lays the foundation for children's success throughout their school years.

The Wellington Catholic District School Board is accepting new registrations for kindergarten students. Please click here to complete the online student registration form.
