Kindergarten

If  your child is five years old on or before December 31, they are eligible to register for kindergarten for the following school year. Our Kindergarten Information Evenings are held in February of each year. Please plan to attend if you would like to learn more about the kindergarten program and your school. 

Kindergarten Information Packages are available online and the registration procedures will be shared at the school’s information evening. 

If you are unable to attend the orientation, please call the school and inquire directly. 

School of Choice: 

If you wish to attend a school not in your catchment area or if you are from another division, please visit our School of Choice guidelines and application forms.

Several schools are not in a position to consider School of Choice due to over-enrolment. For 2022-23, these include Bairdmore, Crane, Henry G. Izatt, South Pointe and Whyte Ridge.  Additionally, French Immersion students are not accepted from outside of Pembina Trails in K-9 because of capacity issues.

Out-of-catchment residents are required to register at their catchment school  before submitting a School of Choice form to their desired school. School of Choice Within Division and Out-of-Division applicants will be notified of acceptance from May-mid-June. Selections will be determined by classroom space availability.

Please be aware that a decision on your child(ren)’s acceptance at your school of choice may not be made until the end of June.

Accepted SOC students are not eligible for bussing
