February is Kindergarten Registration Month Kindergarten is the first step in a lifelong journey that will see your child learn, grow, and succeed at the Toronto District School Board. At the TDSB, we know early learners learn best through doing; so our four and five year olds are introduced to math and science through play as part of K-12 STEM programming. To inspire a love for learning, kindergarten classrooms are bustling with inquiry and exploration through science activities, math games, art projects and more.

To attend Junior Kindergarten in September, children must turn four years old by December 31 , 2019. To register for Senior Kindergarten, children must be five years old by December 31, 2019.

All of our schools now offer Full Day Kindergarten where students will attend Kindergarten for the entire school day. This includes a morning and afternoon schedule and a lunch break. Visit the TDSB or Ministry of Ontario Kindergarten website to learn more about this program and learn how to prepare your child for school.
