Kindergarten Registration for the 2016-17 School Year Begins January 4th

Beginning January 4, 2016, the York Catholic District School Board will accept new kindergarten registrations for September 2016. The Board looks forward to welcoming new families for the 2016-2017 school year.

Children must be four years old by December 31, 2016 and born in 2012 to register in junior kindergarten, or five years old by December 31, 2016 and born in 2011 to register in senior kindergarten.

The Full-Day Kindergarten (FDK) program helps children develop a solid foundation for their future learning by enhancing their social, emotional, cognitive, language, and academic skills in a safe, caring, nurturing and fun environment. The FDK program teaches children through inquiry and play-based learning methods. Teachers and Early Childhood Educators work together in kindergarten classes to support the unique needs of each child.

Parents and guardians who wish to register their children in the York Catholic FDK program should bring the original documents listed below to their local Catholic school during regular school hours, and are encouraged to call the school ahead of their visit. Students currently attending junior kindergarten at a York Catholic school do not need to re-register for senior kindergarten.

  • Proof of legal status in Canada.
  • Proof of residency.
