Kindergarten Registration (Year 1 and Year 2)

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.

Parents of children wishing to begin Kindergarten are encouraged to reach out to one of our local elementary schools. To begin the pre-registration process, click here.
