- time to register for September -
September is still 7 months away, but families are encouraged to start getting their children ready for Kindergarten. The Greater Essex County District School Board will begin accepting registrations for Kindergarten for the 2015-16 school year between February 9-20.
Children must be at least 4 years of age on or before December 31, 2015 to be attend Kindergarten.
Every public school in the Board will be hosting an Open House on Wednesday, February 11th at 5:00 p.m. to allow families to see the classrooms, meet the staff and receive information that will help their children be ready for school in September.
Each child registering with the GECDSB will receive a package of information and resources including, the book, “What Did You Do at School Today?”, which was written and illustrated by GECDSB teachers, a CD of sing-a-long songs, a DVD copy of the Board’s new song, “Discover Me” and the Board’s award-winning video Welcome to Kindergarten.
