Kindergarten registration for children born in 2014 begins on November 1st.

All Kindergarten applicants are required to submit an application to their English catchment elementary school. This includes families who wish to apply for choice programs (French Immersion, Montessori, etc.) and/or a cross boundary placement.

The priority registration period for Kindergarten opens on Thursday November 1st and closes at 4 pm on Thursdary January 31st. Students who submit an application within this priority period will be accommodated before late applicants. 

Applying for Kindergarten is a 2-Step process:

Step 1: Completion of an online application form.

Step 2: Bringing supporting documentation, along with your child, to your neighbourhood English catchment school.

Supporting Documents Needed:

1.      Proof of residence in Vancouver

2.      Child’s birth certificate

3.      Immigration documentation (if applicable)

4.      Immunization records

5.      Court Orders/Documents (if applicable)


If you want to apply for a Choice program or cross-boundary, you must first apply to your English catchment elementary school. Applications for Choice programs and cross boundary placements will begin to be accepted in early 2019.


In the event there are more in-catchment applicants than available space* at the school, the following process will be used to prioritize enrolment:

Kindergarten Applications Received Between November 1st and January 31st

1.      In-catchment Kindergarten applicants with siblings in attendance at the school (and who will be attending next year) will be placed first.

2.      The names of all other in-catchment registrants will be entered into a random draw for the remaining Kindergarten spaces. 

3.      Students who cannot be accommodated will be placed on a waitlist in the order in which their name was drawn.

4.      Between January 31st and the second Friday in June students on the ordered waitlist will be accommodated as space becomes available. 

Kindergarten Registrations Received AFTER January 31st

In-catchment Kindergarten students who apply after January 31st will be accommodated if there is space.  If there is no space their names will be added to the bottom of the existing waitlist.

Note: There will be no priority given to registrants with siblings if they register after January 31st.
