Whether your child is just entering Kindergarten for the first time or transferring from another school board, we’re happy to help you register your child for school at HCDSB!

2021-2022 Advanced Kindergarten Registrations

Although we accept registrations at any time throughout the school year, this year, in light of the health and safety protocols in place in our schools due to COVID-19, we have set aside three weeks for advanced Kindergarten registration for children in Year 1 (Junior Kindergarten) or children new to our school in Year 2 (Senior Kindergarten). 

Parents interested in registering their child in Kindergarten for the 2021-2022 school year are asked to complete Part 1 of the registration process online.  

Due to the extension of the remote learning period, Part 2 of the registration process will be rescheduled after schools reopen for in-person learning.

NOTE: You will be contacted by your home school to complete Part 2 once schools reopen for in-person learning.
