Our classrooms foster learning through inquiry and wonder. Please join us at KinderSTARt to find out what makes our classrooms "wonder-full." If your child is four or five years old by December 31, 2018, visit your neighbourhood school in February to register your child for Full-Day Kindergarten and participate in the KinderSTARt celebration!
KinderSTARt is an opportunity for families to explore the school, meet staff and learning about community services and resources available to help support your child's positive transition to school. Please expect to visit for approximately one-hour, during which you will need to complete registration forms and children will engage in fun activities.

During Kindergarten registration, the Ministry of Education is conducting a voluntary survey regarding experiences in child care and community activities, called EYE@K.
Families will be invited to complete the survey and the information will be shared within the school to help our educators and principals support your child's transition to Full-Day Kindergarten. The information will also be shared with the Ministry of Education, Lambton Kent District School Board and child care system planners in your community to assist with planning, coordinating and improving programs and services for families and young children.
