Schools Closed to Students

The Ministry of Education has announced that all schools will remain closed to students beginning April 19. Please do not send your child to school. Remote learning will continue during this closure.

Kindergarten Registration

Kindergarten registration is now open. 

Please read all of the following information to register your child. 

Step 1 - Before you Register

Before registering, families should confirm the following important school registration information:

  • Find your school
  • Ensure you have the required documents for registration listed in step 3.

Step 2 - How to Register

There are several two ways you can register for kindergarten on or after January 15, 2021.

Create a new account or access your existing Edsby account to complete the online registration.

Note: If you already have an Edsby account, please login with your existing username and password in order to link your Kindergarten child with your existing account. 

Once you are logged in, to register a new student for Kindergarten, go to “Registration Campaigns” under “Applications” on the left side of the welcome page.

If you need assistance, please reach out to the main office at your school.

Families can download the Elementary School Registration Form and email the completed form to your school email address. Email addresses can be found on the school website

Families can request support from the school Principal/Vice-Principal to complete the registration form on their behalf by collecting the required information by phone. Families can request an interpreter, if needed, during this phone conversation. Call your local school.   

You can mail completed Elementary School Registration Forms to the school, or request an appointment to drop-off your completed paper application form. 

Step 3 - Verify your registration at the school

Once you have completed your application, the school will contact you to make an appointment to review and verify the required documents. The document verification process is by appointment only at this time. The school will contact you via email and/or phone to set up an appointment to verify documentation.

Required Documentation

Find and bring these supporting documents (originals required) to your appointment:

  • Proof of child’s age (Birth Certificate/Passport)
  • Proof of your child’s address - two documents, one from each of the categories below showing the home address;
    • Category A - notice of tax assessment, current rental/lease agreement, agreement to purchase including proof of purchase provided before the pupil attends the school, or property tax bill, and
    • Category B - utility bill, bank statement or other official document. 

​Additional information about more specific situations is available in the School Admissions Policy and Procedure or through your home school.​

Additional Documents

The Kindergarten Parent/Guardian Questionnaire allows you to provide your school with specific information to support the transition to school.  Your child’s Kindergarten educators will use the information you share to help to create an inclusive and welcoming transition to Kindergarten for your child.  We appreciate all the information that you are able to provide.
