Kindergarten Registration for September 2018

25 Jan

Dear Parents,

Starting school is an exciting time for your child. Our schools provide a rich learning environment for all children to learn and grow.

In the Kindergarten program, your child will develop their skills and abilities through inquiry and intentional play-based learning that includes math, science and literacy. Teachers and early childhood educators plan learning experiences where children are actively engaged in learning and thinking creatively.

Please note:

  • Only parents or legal guardians can register a child for TDSB programs.
  • There is a separate process to apply for optional attendance. This also applies to children who currently attend a child care within a school but live outside the attendance area for that school. If you wish to register your child at an elementary alternative school or elementary academy, please contact the school directly for more information about requirements and the registration process.

Registration for all TDSB Kindergarten students, for September 2018 takes place in February.  Parents, you have the option of fully registering your child in-person at Summit Heights PS on Thursday, February 22, 2018 (by appointment), or beginning the registration process online (which will make the in-person registration portion quicker).

Please call the school (416-395-2920), speak to Ms. Magnani to make an appointment on February 22, 2018.

Visit the TDSB Kindergarten registration web site at:  http://www.tdsb.on.ca/kindergarten, the online registration system opens on February 1, 2018.
