Kindergarten

All SD62 elementary schools offer full day kindergarten for our youngest learners. To register, children must turn five years of age by December 31 in the same calendar year that they begin school. Registration for kindergarten is a first-come, first-served basis and normally takes place in January.

Please visit the following pages for more information:

*Note: Parents MUST attend a Nature K info session prior to registration. Please see Nature Kindergarten page for dates.

Grades 1 – 12

New to our school district? If your child is in Grades 1-12, registration can be done online throughout the year.

Already enrolled in SD62? If you would like your child to change schools within our district, simply fill out the School Change Request form. There is no need to re-register your child as they transition grades.

*We recommend contacting your neighbourhood school prior to registering to find out about available space and resources.

French Immersion

Early French Immersion

Students who opt for Early Immersion usually enter the program in Kindergarten and continue their French studies through to grade twelve. In Grade 12, they receive a ‘Double Dogwood’ (a bilingual graduation certificate). Students may also begin the program in Grade 1. Please visit the French Immersion – Kindergarten page for complete details regarding registration.

Late French Immersion

Students who choose late immersion will enter the French program in Grade 6 at École John Stubbs Memorial School. In Grade 8, late immersion students will merge with the students who enrolled in early immersion.

Parents can register online or in-person at their neighbourhood school. If registering online, please select Late French Immersion as your preference. Parents who wish to register in person must do so at École John Stubbs Memorial School.

As this is a popular program, parents are encouraged to register as close as possible to the opening of registration.

Visit the French Immersion page to see a list of SD62 schools that offer French Immersion as well as more information about French in SD62.
