Registration FAQ

How old must my child be to register for school?
All children must be four years of age on or before December 31 in the year they start the Pre-Primary program or five years of age on or before December 31 in the year they start Grade Primary. Proof of age and legal name (as listed on birth certificate, passport, immigration papers, legal name change certificate or adoption documents) must be shown at the school before your child may attend.

Why is registration held so early?
Registration is conducted at this time because schools need accurate registration information to ensure appropriate resources are in schools by September.

How do I know which school my child should attend?

Where can I find more information on my child's school?

You can access information using the School Finder Tool.
