Kindergarten Registration Month

Come Learn With Us!

Starting school is an exciting time. Our schools provide a rich learning environment for all children to learn and grow.

In the Kindergarten program, your child will develop their skills and abilities through inquiry and intentional play-based learning that includes math, science and literacy. Teachers and early childhood educators plan learning experiences where children are actively engaged in learning and thinking creatively.

Children who will be four by December 31, 2023, can start Junior Kindergarten in September 2023.

How to Register for Kindergarten

Registration for English Kindergarten programs begins in February (*see below for information about the Early French Immersion program). We look forward to welcoming you and your child! You may choose to register using the online registration system or by booking a face-to-face meeting directly with your school.


Early French Immersion

The Early French Immersion program begins in Junior Kindergarten (JK). Families who wish to have their child participate in an Early French Immersion Program must apply in November. To apply, please visit 
www.tdsb.on.ca/pars

For September 2023 entry, the deadline to apply was November 25, 2022. Applications that are submitted after this deadline will be marked as late and accommodated if space in the program is available.

In February, only those families who applied in November and have accepted an offer of placement for their child via the  central application process can register in Early French Immersion.
