Kindergarten

‘Growing, Learning and Playing Together’ 

Alberta Education develops the curriculum for Kindergarten in consultation with early childhood teachers.  It describes what young children need to learn to prepare for Grade 1 and provides a foundation for future learning.

Children who are eligible for Kindergarten in 2020 – 2021 will have been born in 2015.

Kindergarten registrations are now being accepted at all elementary schools.

If you would like to register your child for a program you will be asked to provide proof of your child’s name, date of birth and citizenship. Only the following documents verifying birth:

  • Birth certificate of the child
  • Canadian Citizen Certificate
  • Passport
