Kindergarten Resources for Parents & Guardians


Entering Kindergarten is an exciting and emotional time for both parent and child. It is also a critical step in the child's education. When children reach Kindergarten their teacher will help them focus on the development of early literacy and numeracy skills, decision-making skills, creativity, communication skills, independence and feelings of self-worth. 

There will be all kinds of interesting and creative activities; from painting to story time, counting, cultural expression, physical education and more, children will be engaged in structured learning for the development of themselves as a student and as a person. 

Each year, an introductory ‘Welcome to Kindergarten’ event is held at every school. Most schools hold their event in May or June and a few schools have their event in September.  Once you have registered your child for Kindergarten, the school will send you an invitation to attend their event. Please click here to view our 2022-2023 Welcome to Kindergarten Events at our schools.  

In addition to the scheduled events, each registered student will receive a new Kindergarten Learning Bag, which includes general information related to kindergarten programming, activities, and materials to support literacy and numeracy skills.  Each bag also contains a can of Heinz Alphagetti Pasta, generously donated by Sobeys Extra Brandon South. 

Also included in our new Welcome to Kindergarten Learning Bags is a copy of the book “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom”.  Check out the video below with a special read-a-loud version of the book from our Kindergarten Teachers. 


Please take a moment to view the video presentation below as we enter the registration period for the 2022-2023 School Year.  


If you have questions regarding your child's registration, please contact your catchment area school, or send us an email:, and one of our staff will get back to you.
