Registering your child for a new school is an important part of settling into your new community. It’s always a good idea to start planning early so you can be aware of the details and requirements.
If you’re staying within the same school board, it’s merely a matter of completing a registration form to apply for a change of school and transportation. Switching to a different board, however, might involve considerations like credit transfers or language requirements, if your child is moving in or out of French immersion. Maintain contact with office administrators at both your old and new schools as they can help make the transition as smooth as possible.
Registering for kindergarten
Starting kindergarten is an important milestone for both you and your child(ren), and preparing for that first year of school can be a complex process; however, many schools offer information sessions to ensure that no questions are left unanswered. Check the website for your preferred school to see important dates for registration and information sessions.
Extended day programs
Working full-time when you have children can be challenging. Fortunately, most schools offer extended day programs that allow you to drop off your child on your way to work then pick them up at the end of the day. Drop-off and pick-up times may vary, however, so be sure to visit each school’s website for full details. The same goes for learning about potential impacts or changes to school programming as a result of COVID-19; you’ll want to visit each school’s website or call for that type of information.
