Welcome to the Kinderstart/Kindergarten registration page. You may be asking, am I registering for Kinderstart or Kindergarten? The answer is BOTH! You see, when you register your child for Kindergarten, you are registering for Kinderstart starting this September (or later depending on the school Kinderstart Session schedule) and Kindergarten the following September.

Early French Immersion

  • French Immersion is a program designed for non-francophone children. Parents/guardians interested in registering a child for the French Immersion Kindergarten Program must select their zoned school. If Early French Immersion is not offered in the zoned school, parents/guardians must select the school closest to their place of residence that offers Early French Immersion (EFI).

  • Early French Immersion Kindergarten registration takes place on a on a first-come first served basis for a limited number of seats. Applications will be dated and time-stamped upon submission of the online application form. All students are entitled to a program in English so if your child is waitlisted for EFI at a school that is not your zoned school, space will be held at the zoned school. Parents/guardians will be provided with further information once class lists for EFI are finalized in September.
