Nature Kindergarten Registration – 2020-21

KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION

 

FRENCH IMMERSION KINDERGARTEN, LATE ENTRY FRENCH IMMERSION AND NATURE KINDERGARTEN

January 13TH – 17TH, 2020

 

GENERAL KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION

January 27TH – 31ST, 2020

 

In the past all Kindergarten registration has taken place at the same time in SD 62 but this created challenges for parents and caregivers whose children did not get a spot in one of the specialized programs due to limited space and high demand.

Moving the registration dates for Nature Kindergarten and French Immersion Kindergarten to the earlier dates will allow those families ample time to participate in General Kindergarten Registration.

More details are available on our website SD62.bc.ca
