‘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.


To be eligible for Kindergarten, your child must be four years, six months old before September 1st of the school year.

Children who are eligible for Kindergarten in 2018 – 2019 are born between March 2, 2013 – March 1, 2014.

Kindergarten registrations are now being accepted at all district 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

If the child requires a pair of glasses, they will receive them FREE of charge courtesy of our participating sponsors.  With the “Free Eyeglasses Program,” any kindergarten student who requires glasses will receive one pair at no charge from their optometrist.
