Registration is open between November 1 and January 31. Families who wish to register their children should:
1) complete the application form,
2) contact the school where the program takes place directly to make an appointment to submit the application, and
3) bring the form to the school office during your scheduled appointment
District program enrolment is not on a first-come, first-served basis. If a program does not have space for all students registering for it, children with a sibling already attending the program will be offered enrolment first. A random draw will then take place to determine placements and establish an ordered waitlist.
