GUELPH, Ontario – Kindergarten registration for the Upper Grand District School Board is fast approaching. Registration for new UGDSB Junior Kindergarten (JK) and Senior Kindergarten (SK) students for September 2022 will take place between January 4-21, 2022.

Here is a step-by-step guide on the registration process:

  1. Pre-register online at between January 4-21.
  2. Once you have registered, make sure that you have received a confirmation email to your inbox (please check your spam folder if you do not receive it in your main inbox folder)

  4. If applying to French Immersion, you must complete the application process, including submission of all required documents by 4pm on January 21, 2022

The online pre-registration process allows families to fill out the pre-registration form when it’s convenient for them. If parents and guardians require assistance pre-registering online or do not have access to technology, they are asked to contact their child’s home school. Also, if English is not your family’s first language, the UGDSB website can be translated by selecting the preferred language from the “Select Language” button on the top right-hand side of the website. There are over 90 languages to choose from.

All UGDSB schools that offer French Immersion at the Junior Kindergarten level have an enrolment cap. All parents/guardians wishing to apply for JK French Immersion must have completed their pre-registration and FI application by Jan. 21, 2022 at 4pm in order to be considered ‘on time.’ For more information on the JK FI application and selection process, visit
