Kindergarten Registration

Welcome to Kindergarten!

Starting school is an exciting time for your child. 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.

How to Register

Registration for all TDSB Kindergarten programs begins in February.
We look forward to welcoming you and your child! You may choose to register in person at your local school or by using our new online registration system.

Children who will be four by December 31, 2019, can start Junior Kindergarten in September 2019.

Please note:

  • Only parents or legal guardians can register a child for TDSB programs.
  • There is a separate process to apply for optional attendance. This also applies to children who currently attend a child care within a school but live outside the attendance area for that school. If you wish to register your child at an elementary alternative school or elementary academy, please contact the school directly for more information about requirements and the registration process.
