If you have a child who will turn five between now and December 31st, it's time to register him/her for kindergarten.
Starting school is an important time in a child's life. To ease the transition from home or preschool, parents are encouraged to register their children for kindergarten in October of the year prior to when they begin school. This allows teachers, principals and school district staff time to organize several opportunities to meet with parents and children before school begins the following September.
During such sessions, parents will learn about the typical development of four-year olds and ways they can encourage this development. They will be provided with information about the school and the kindergarten program, and given the opportunity to ask questions. Children will also have the chance to visit the school and become familiar with some of the staff and the surroundings.
