Kindergarten Registration Opens Jan. 23.

Posted on

Kindergarten registration for the 2023/24 school year will open for all schools in Rocky View Schools (RVS) on Jan. 23, 2022. 

“RVS looks forward to welcoming our newest students in Sept. 2023 as they enter Kindergarten,” said Superintendent of Schools, Greg Luterbach. “The division and individual schools are here to support families in a smooth transition as we prepare for the upcoming school year.”

In RVS, Kindergarten is offered as a half-day program in most schools. Select schools have a full-day Kindergarten program on alternating days. Later in the spring, children will be placed in morning or afternoon programs based on circumstances outlined by parents and available space. Although registration will continue throughout the year, registering early helps families and schools plan for a successful transition and provides RVS necessary information to have teachers and resources in place.

“Our Kindergarten programs build on what children have already learned at home and in the community, and starts them on the path towards early literacy and math skills,” said Luterbach. “Students also develop important social and problem-solving skills and begin developing positive attitudes and behaviours towards learning and school.”

Alberta’s standardized age of Kindergarten entry requires students to turn five years old by Dec. 31 of the school year they begin Kindergarten. This means children born between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2018, can register for Kindergarten for the 2023/24 school year.

All new registrations for Kindergarten must be completed through SchoolEngage, RVS’ online registration system. During operational hours, schools will allow access to a computer and assist families who otherwise do not have access to a computer.

Families can visit our dedicated Kindergarten registration webpage for more information about Kindergarten registration including what their designated school is for their neighbourhood.
