Welcome to Kindergarten!

Kindergarten is an exciting milestone in the lives of children and their families. These early experiences set the foundation for lifelong learning and begin to build the skills children need to become confident, resilient and contributing members of the community.

Effective Fall 2020, Kindergarten eligibility requirements will be changing to comply with Alberta's new Education Act and subsequent Early Childhood Services Regulations. The new standardized age of entry requires students to turn five by December 31 of the school year they wish to begin Kindergarten. For next year, this change means children born between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2015, can register for Kindergarten for the 2020/21 school year.

Note - For the 2020/21 school year, students entering Gr. 1 must turn six by the end of February 2021. Following this transition year, students must turn six by December 31.

Before registering your child, please review the important documentation you'll need on hand.

Out-of-Attendance Area

RVS parents wishing to transfer their K – Gr. 12 child to a school other than their designated school must complete RVS’ Out of Attendance Area application form and submit it to their designated school. Once the form is signed off by the designated school administration, bring the form and a letter outlining why you are requesting the change to the school of your choice. That school’s administration will work with you to determine if this transition is possible.
