Ready, Set, Kindergarten! Grand Erie Gears Up for Registration Month
January is Kindergarten registration month, and Grand Erie District School Board is ready to welcome its newest class of young learners, with information for parents to assist them during the registration process. Parents of children who will be four years old by the end of 2019 will want to take note of deadlines and required documents to ensure a seamless start to their child’s schooling in September.
“Starting Kindergarten is a major milestone, both for children and their parents,” said Linda De Vos, Superintendent of Education, responsible for the Elementary Program. “Recognizing this, our staff are here to welcome students and their parents in order to ease the transition. Kindergarten classrooms across Grand Erie are vibrant, welcoming spaces where students build positive relationships, learn problem-solving skills, and develop a strong sense of themselves.”
Parents of soon-to-be Kindergarten students can visit Grand Erie’s Kindergarten page for more information about the registration process. This includes finding their child’s home school, what documents are required for registration, transportation, community resources, and before-and-after-school programs.
Grand Erie District School Board represents more than 25,000 students in 58 elementary and 14 secondary schools within the City of Brantford and the counties of Brant, Haldimand, and Norfolk. With a dedicated staff of more than 2,500, Grand Erie is committed to its goal of Success for Every Student.
