Welcome to Kindergarten




Children born in 2019 are eligible to enter kindergarten in September 2024.


Parents, who feel their child is not yet ready for kindergarten, may defer enrollment for one year. Please contact Allen Beckingham (250-770-7700) at the School Board Office if you have further questions.


Placement in your neighbourhood school kindergarten is based on your address and registration date. The earlier you register, the more likely your child will attend a school close to your home.


Register at your neighborhood school during regular school hours. A birth certificate will be required as well as your child’s BC Care Card, parental BC Care Card and proof of address (i.e. driver’s license, utility bill, lease agreement).


School District 67 has a new web page with helpful information about getting your child ready for Kindergarten (click here).
