Nature Kindergarten Registration – 2020-21




January 13TH – 17TH, 2020



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
