Registration Information

 
New Kindergarten registration Protocol:
What do parents need to know?
 

 
ALL children need to register for kindergarten at their English catchment school – even if you do not intend to attend there.  This includes students who want to go to French Immersion or other Choice Programs – even siblings of children already in the program.
 
You are encouraged to apply 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.
 
Application for all programs of choice – including French Immersion, Montessori, Mandarin Bilingual, Aboriginal Focus School, and Fine Arts – will begin online in January.  You will need a Personal Education Number (PEN) to apply and this will only be available if you apply to your english catchment school.
 
For more detailed information, contact your English catchment school or go to http://www.vsb.bc.ca/kindergarten.
