Starting Monday, October 7, 2019 families will be able to register their child in Pre-Primary outside of their catchment area in schools where programs are not at full capacity. These spaces are available to children that currently do not have access to a Pre-Primary Program in their catchment school.

  • Children must not currently have access to Pre-Primary in their catchment school.
  • Children must not have already attended a Pre-Primary Program.
