Time is running out to register your child for Kindergarten for the school year that starts in September in Oakville, Burlington, Milton and Halton Hills.

The Halton District School Board is accepting registrations for junior and senior Kindergarten. Families are advised to call their local elementary school to find out which dates have been established for Kindergarten registration in their area.

Registration will be by appointment only (in-person and/or virtual). Parents/guardians are asked to register their child by Feb. 1, 2023 or as soon as possible.

Registration forms are available online on the Registering for Kindergarten webpage on the HDSB website.

Families should contact the HDSB Welcome Centre to book an appointment if they hold a work permit and are registering their child with the HDSB for the first time, or if either the parent or child has a study permit/visa, or the parent is a permanent resident applicant on visitor status.

You’ll need to have the following original documents when registering:

  • Proof of address (any two of the following current documents): lease or deed, car registration, utility bill, residential telephone bill, moving bill, property tax bill, bank statement, credit card statement, correspondence with a government agency
  • Proof of age: birth certificate or passport or baptismal/faith record for your child
  • Proof of citizenship: birth certificate or passport, record of landing (IMM 1000) or permanent resident card
  • If you are not the child’s parent, or if you have sole custody, please bring proof of custody (court order).

To register for junior Kindergarten, children must be four years old by Dec. 31, 2023, and senior Kindergarten children must be five years old by Dec. 31, 2023.
