2024-2025 Application Process for High Demand Kindergarten Programming


Entering Kindergarten is an exciting and emotional time for both parent and child. It is also a critical step in the child's education. When children reach Kindergarten, their teacher will help them focus on the development of early literacy and numeracy skills, decision-making skills, creativity, communication skills, independence, and feelings of self-worth. There will be all kinds of interesting and creative activities; from painting to story time, counting, cultural expression, physical education and more, children will be engaged in structured learning for the development of themselves as a student and as a person.

Application Process for High Demand Programming (Kindergarten Registration for French Immersion & St. Augustine School)

At the January 11, 2016 Board Meeting, the Board of Trustees passed Motion #05/2016 which states that registration for high demand programs, such as French Immersion Programming, be completed by random selection. As such, a random selection process will be used for all French Immersion Kindergarten Registrations and all St. Augustine School Kindergarten.
