Welcome to Kindergarten

Welcome to Kindergarten

The Welcome to Kindergarten Events scheduled for spring 2020 will be postponed until September .  Your school will be in touch with you as soon as we have more information about the timing of your WTK event .

Please feel free to connect to the Welcome to Kindergarten website.  There is a wonderful app for children and lots of ideas for learning and getting ready for school.


A Welcome to Kindergarten Bag Resources page is also available here so you can learn what's inside the WTK bag and how to utilize these resources at home with your child.


Welcome to Kindergarten is for parents and caregivers with four and five year old children who will be entering Kindergarten in the current year.

Children and their families will be welcomed to the school and have the opportunity to meet with school staff and community partners. Children will go home with a resource bag that includes pencils, crayons, magnetic numbers and letters, playdough and books, and teachers will show families how to make the best use of the materials.

Most Vancouver schools host a 90-120 minute Welcome to Kindergarten session in May or June. Please contact your Neighbourhood School for event dates.

Additional Welcome to Kindergarten information and resources are available on the Learning Partnership website.

"Support the Transition to Kindergarten" information is also available here.
