Extended day programs
Most schools offer a comprehensive extended day program for children of parents who work full time. This is ideal because your child’s care is assured between the time you drop them off on your way to work, and the time you pick them up. Detailed information can be found on the website for the school you select for your child. Be sure to look into this when selecting your school to be certain that scheduling and placement will align with your individual needs.
Each school board servicing Ottawa offers great kindergarten programs. Be sure to check out the school boards’ websites to learn what each school and program has to offer. Schools hold information sessions each spring, and their administrators are helpful in getting you the information and forms needed to get your child registered. Getting the ball rolling as early as possible can help a lot when the big move is looming on the horizon.
Moving usually means transferring your child to a new school. If you’re moving within Ottawa, then your child will be able to stay in the same school board.

If you are transferring from another school board, there may be specific criteria to meet when changing from one board to another. Consult both the new and old schools’ websites to find out what to expect so there are no unexpected surprises.
