Admission and Registration

Kindergarten Registration

2020-2021 School Year:

PLEASE NOTE: We continue to accept school registrations during the COVID-19 pandemic.

For more information on Kindergarten registration, including how to pre-register online and what documentation must be brought into the home school, visit www.ugdsb.ca/jkregistration  

Please note that Junior Kindergarten is the only entry point into the French Immersion program in the UGDSB.  JK Applications to the French Immersion program are subject to available space. 

2021-2022 School Year:

Online pre-registration for the 2021-2022 school year will open on January 5, 2021 and will run until January 22, 2021 at 4:00 p.m. All Junior and Senior Kindergarten students who are new to the UGDSB must pre-register online at www.ugdsb.ca/jkregistration

All JK registrations submitted after the January 22, 2021 deadline will be considered late.

Parents/guardians applying to register their child for Junior Kindergarten French Immersion will need to contact their French Immersion school for information about program space and waiting lists once the registration period has closed. Please note that Junior Kindergarten is the only entry point into the French Immersion program in the UGDSB.

For more information on Kindergarten registration, including how to pre-register online and how to share your documents for verification with your child’s school, visit www.ugdsb.ca/jkregistration.

Please note, currently all registrations for the 2021-2022 school year are for in-person learning. At this time we do not know whether or not an option for remote learning will be available, but it is important that parents register their children early in order to best project staffing needs for September 2021. Should an option be made available for remote learning, information will be communicated to parents/guardians through the board and school websites.
