Kindergarten Registration

To register for Kindergarten for the 2018/19 school year your child must be four years of age by December 31, 2018. He/she will be eligible to attend Kindergarten in September 2018.

The Registration Form is a four-page document that requests things like student information, medical conditions, parental information, and emergency contacts. Because of the need for accurate information, we recommend that you complete the form at home at your convenience. When you come to the school with your registration form completed, the registration process usually takes less than 15 minutes at the school.

The following documents are required to complete registration:

  1. A Birth Certificate, Birth Registration or Baptismal Certificate
  2. Immunization Certificate (For more information or to register with the Region of Niagara Public Health)
  3. Proof of address such as a recent utility bill or driver's license
