Red Deer Public Schools is getting ready to welcome the Kindergarten class of 2017. Registration for Kindergarten and Pre-Kindergarten programming begins Jan. 9th both online and at elementary schools across the City.

New this year – families will be able to register their children for Kindergarten online starting at 8:15 a.m. on Jan. 9th.

Staff also welcome parents to stop in at their neighbourhood school to register their child starting Monday morning as well. For online registration, families have to go to the district or any school web site and click on Student Registration under quick links starting at 8:15 a.m.

Another new feature – for September 2017 there will be an increase in the number of schools offering full-day Kindergarten programs. Rather than going to morning or afternoon classes five days a week, the full-day option has students attending classes all day Monday and Wednesday as well as alternating Fridays or Tuesday and Thursdays and alternating Fridays throughout the year. This option will be available at the following elementary schools – Annie L Gaetz, Barrie Wilson, Don Campbell, Gateway Christian, Mattie McCullough and Oriole Park.

In addition to the English Kindergarten program, families will also have the choice of language options for Kindergarten including French and Spanish offered at Barrie Wilson, Mountview, Oriole Park (French) or Spanish Bilingual (Escuela Vista Grande (former Grandview Elementary).
