Kindergarten Virtual Open Houses
January 25, 2021- To follow public health measures, Kindergarten open houses for all schools in Parkland School Division that offer Kindergarten programming will be held online on Wednesday, February 17, 2021. These virtual sessions are designed as information nights, where parents and guardians can log on to a live session to meet the staff and learn more about their child’s learning.
Check your designated school for virtual open house dates, times and login information.
How to Register for Kindergarten
Fill out the online 2021-2022 New Student Registration Form once it becomes available beginning February 8, 2021. The student's birth certificate and proof of residence will be required as part of the registration process—you will be able to upload these when you fill out the form or you may submit copies of these documents to the school.
Important: Be sure to register using the 2021-2022 New Student Registration Form. The “New Student Registration Form” link currently live on the Division’s Registration page is only for students registering for the balance of the current 2020-2021 school year.
All parents are encouraged to complete the registration process by 4:30pm on March 25, 2021. This deadline allows us to determine the eligibility of bus pass applicants, the routing of buses and data verification before the summer break while schools are still operating. Registrations will continue to be accepted after the deadline for those families who may be moving into the jurisdiction.
For more detailed information on the online registration process, visit PSD’s Registration page.
Designed for students whose first language is not French, this bilingual education program is open to students who live in the eastern end of Parkland School Division. École Broxton Park School and École Meridian Heights School provides programming for students from Kindergarten to Grade 9. Graduates of the program can participate easily in French conversations, move on to take French Immersion courses in high school, take post-secondary courses with French as the language of instruction, and accept employment with French as the language of work. For more, visit the French Immersion page on this website.
Maranatha Christian Program
The Maranatha Christian Program (MCP) is available to all families who want their Kindergarten to Grade 9 children taught in a non-denominational, spiritually nurturing, intellectually challenging, and disciplined environment. Those families who are interested in their children entering Kindergarten with this program-of-choice should log on to the virtual open house for Brookwood School.
