Welcome to Kindergarten Sessions

“Welcome to Kindergarten” is a preschool readiness program designed for parents/guardians and their children.  It provides parents/guardians with tools and resources to engage their children in early learning experiences prior to Kindergarten.  The dates and times for this year’s Welcome to Kindergarten sessions are outlined on the Welcome to Kindergarten page.

If you have a child who is eligible to start kindergarten in September 2014 and that child has not yet been registered, you are encouraged to register with your local school as soon as possible.  This will help ensure you have an opportunity to take advantage of the school’s orientation process and resources available to parents of kindergarten-age children.
