Kindergarten? What is new and what do parents need to know?
For kindergarten entry in 2014, registration will begin on November 1, 2013.
You should be aware that there are some changes this year.
ALL children will register for kindergarten at their English catchment school – even if you do not intend to attend there. This includes kindergarten students who want to go to a Choice program – even siblings of children already in the program.)
If your child was born outside of Canada, you need to go to the VSB District Receiption & Placement Centre (DRPC) and complete the initial Kindergarten registration there.
Register your child between November 1 and January 31. If your English catchment school does not have space for all the children in the catchment, there will be a lottery in February.
Kindergarten applications for all programs of choice – including Southlands IB Primary Years Program – will begin online on January 10, 2014. You will need a Personal Education Number (PEN) to apply and this will only be sent to you if you register at your English catchment school. When you are ready to apply or for more information go to http://www.vsb.bc.ca/kindergarten .
