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.

In Fall 2020, Kindergarten eligibility requirements changed 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. This 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. You'll also want to know your child's designated school, which can be found through our Attendance Area maps. If unsure about your child’s designated school, please call 403.945.4125.

After Registering Online

After registering online, a few days later, you will receive an email from the school notifying you if your child has been approved. If registering during the summer months when schools are closed, all registrations will be looked at once the schools open on the last week of August. At that time you will receive an email from the school notifying if your child has been approved.

For additional assistance with online registration call 403.945.4115.

Register In-Person

To register your child in-person, visit your designated school for assistance with the digital registration. Alternatively, you may visit RVS' Education Centre at 2651 Chinook Winds Drive, SW, Airdrie, to complete the digital registration using the community computer, as there are no longer paper application forms.

Out-of-Attendance Area

RVS parents wishing their Kindergarten child be enroled 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.

Out-of-Jurisdiction

Parents living outside RVS boundaries wanting to register their Kindergarten child in a RVS school must complete a printed 2020/21 Registration Form and an Out of Attendance Area application form. Both forms need to be submitted to the RVS school of choice to be considered for out-of-area enrolment.
