Application Process

Parents must register at their neighbourhood English catchment school between November and the end of January before applying for choice program(s).

Beginning January 14, 2019  you can apply for up to three choice programs through our online application process.  To apply you must have completed your child's Registration at their English Catchment School by the end of January.  The application period for Kindergarten Choice Programs closes on February 4, 2019 at 4pm.

If the choice program you wish to attend is very popular, there may be a draw for student placement. By late February you will hear back whether you have a space in the school or program. You will be given a formal offer of a space in a kindergarten choice program or an indication of where you sit on the waitlist.

If you have not heard back by the end of February, please contact the school principal of your neighborhood English catchment school and they will help you find out about your child’s status.
