Ottawa School Boards
Registering your child for a new school is an important step when settling into your new community. It’s always a good idea to start early so you are aware of all 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. Changing from a different school board means there may be more considerations like credit transfers, or language requirements if your child is moving into—or out of—French immersion.
Maintain contact with office administrators at both old and new schools as they can help make the transition as smooth as possible.
Registering for Kindergarten
Watching our children grow up so fast is difficult, but it’s also exciting! Starting Kindergarten is an important milestone for both child and parent. Preparing for that first year of school can be a complex process, however each school offers information sessions in the spring to ensure 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 which allow you to drop your child off on your way to work, then pick them up at the end of the day. Specific times may vary depending on the start time of your child’s school, so be sure to check on the school’s website for full details.
Getting a head start on this important transition can greatly reduce stress and help you check one thing off your to-do list.
