Kindergarten

Starting school is an exciting time for your child. Our schools provide a rich learning environment for all children to learn and grow.

In the Kindergarten program, your child will develop their skills and abilities through inquiry and intentional play-based learning. Teachers and early childhood educators plan learning experiences where children are actively engaged in learning and thinking creatively.

Children can attend Junior Kindergarten in the calendar year that they turn four and Senior Kindergarten in the year that they turn five. Registration begins in February. For specific registration dates and times, please contact your local school

If you are interested in French Immersion, please visit the French Immersion page for more information and to learn about Early French Immersion programs. The application process for French Immersion takes place in November of the year your child is in Junior Kindergarten.

To learn more about the TDSB's kindergarten program, including home tips on preparing your child for school, visit the Kindergarten Links and Resources page.

Interested in applying to a school other than the one that serves your home address? Read about our Optional Attendance.

Before and After School Programming

As part of Kindergarten registration, each year the TDSB surveys parents/guardians of Kindergarten students to determine their interest in a Before and After School Program at their child's school. Please visit our Before and After School Programs page for more information. The Before and After School Program will be offered in schools where there is confirmed interest from the families of at least 20 children.
