Schools hosting virtual kindergarten information nights in March

January 19, 2022

Kopenhouse_news.pngKindergarten is a special time and place in the life of a young child and Saskatoon Public Schools is dedicated to welcoming every student to a safe and caring environment.

In past years, schools have held in-person information nights to share details about kindergarten and the school with families. In-person events aren't possible this year, however most schools will hold virtual gatherings during late February and early March.

The information nights will introduce families to everything kindergarten has to offer, provide details about registration, introduce parents to the teacher and classroom, and share information about the school and its community.

Parents and caregivers who want to be a part of a school's information night must contact the school by phone or email to register in advance. All participants will receive a meeting link from the school ahead of the event. A list of dates and times and a link to each school website is available below.

To start kindergarten in September 2022, children must be five years old by Jan. 31, 2023. Kindergarten classes are offered on either a half-day, every day schedule; full-day, alternating day; or full-day every day, depending upon the school. Details are available on the kindergarten information page at saskatoonpublicschools.ca/kindergarten or in the kindergarten brochure.

thanks to the support of the Saskatoon Public Schools Foundation's Early Learning Equal Start program, full day, every day kindergarten class is offered at Caroline Robins, Caswell, Fairhaven, Howard Coad, King George, Lester B. Pearson, Mayfair, North Park Wilson, Pleasant Hill, Sutherland, Vincent Massey, wâhkôhtowin, and W.P. Bate. Students who reside within the school's catchment area will receive first consideration. Westmount offers a full-day Michif kindergarten program supported by Métis Nation—Saskatchewan.

Seven schools offer both English language and French Immersion kindergarten programs: Alvin Buckwold, College Park, Dundonald, Forest Grove, Lakeview, River Heights, and Silverspring. Single-stream French Immersion kindergarten programs are available at École Henry Kelsey and École Victoria. Buena Vista and Lawson Heights schools offer nature-based kindergarten program. Lakeridge School will welcome a new Montessori kindergarten beginning in September.

Online kindergarten instruction in both English and French immersion is offered through the school division's Online Learning Elementary.

The Nêhiyâwiwin Cree Language and Culture Program for kindergarten to Grade 8 is located at wâhkôhtowin School and free, city-wide busing is available for students. The Métis Cultural Program, which delivers kindergarten to Grade 8 curriculum from a Métis/Michif perspective, is located at Westmount Community School.

All neighbourhood schools are accepting kindergarten registration via email or in person. Parents and caregivers are invited to contact their neighbourhood school via email, phone, or in person with any questions about the kindergarten program at their school.

A complete list of all schools along with school websites and contact information is available on the Saskatoon Public Schools website. Each school website has registration information along with a link to the registration form and instructions on how to fill out and submit the form.
