Welcome to Kindergarten
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 be given 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.
All Vancouver schools will host a Welcome to Kindergarten session in April, May or June. Please contact your Neighbourhood School for more information.
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.
