The Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board is accepting Kindergarten registrations for September 2018 beginning February 1st. We believe there’s something truly unique and special about learning that is rooted in faith and spiritual growth.
Choosing a school for your child is an important decision and our dedicated staff will help you along the way. Parents are invited to contact their neighbourhood Catholic elementary school to book an appointment. There you will be provided with a package containing all of the details you’ll need to make getting ready for Kindergarten a fun and easy experience. This year, schools will be transitioning into an online version of school registration. It will be a phased in approach, therefore you are encouraged to contact your school’s website for more information.
Schools will also be open one day during the last week of August to accommodate new registrations.
To enrol in Junior Kindergarten children must be four years old by December 31st of the school year in which they begin.
Parents or guardians will need to provide:
• Baptismal Certificate
• Birth Certificate
• Proof of Residency
• Proof of up-to-date Immunization
• Immigration papers, if applicable
Prior to your child starting school, you will be requested to fill out a Pre-School History Form for your child. The form is designed to facilitate the collection of important information about each child's pre-school life experiences. It will be beneficial for the classroom teacher to have knowledge about your child's history, interests and needs.
