Google Translate Limitations Disclaimer

The electronic translation service on the Toronto District School Board website is hosted by Google Translate, a third party service. The TDSB does not guarantee or warrant the reliability, accuracy or completeness of any translated information.

The quality of the translation will vary in some of the languages offered by Google. Google Translate is a free service and currently offers translation in over 100 languages, but does not capture all languages or dialects.

The basic translation goal is to capture the general intention of the original English material. Before you act on translated information, we encourage you to confirm any facts that are important to you or may affect any decisions you make.

The Toronto District School Board is committed to equity and community engagement, and by providing this tool, we are making our information more accessible to families whose first language is not English.

Pre-School Years

Your child’s education begins well before they start school. There are many things you can do to help develop your pre-schooler’s love of learning and prepare them for school.

  • Encourage your child to try new activities and experiences
  • Talk to them and ask questions
  • Communicate using your home language. This will help your child maintain your home language while developing English at school. Research tells us that a strong foundation in one language is a great asset in acquiring a new language
  • Set a daily routine with meals, activities and bedtime to help your child learn routines
  • Visit Parenting and Family Literacy Centres, designed to support your child’s early learning development
  • Socialize with other children
  • Contact your local school to learn about their regular programs and events
  • Visit the school on their welcoming day for children and families
