Do you have a kid born in 2011?
I do… and I can’t believe I have to register him for junior kindergarten already! Where has the time gone???? It’s so bittersweet! Part of me wants to hold him, pretend he is still my chubby cheeked little baby and never let him go. The other part of me is so proud of the brilliant, hilarious little man he’s becoming everyday and I am so excited for this new stage of growth and discovery in his life (and mine!)! Cathcart Public School… here we come!
Here is all you need to know to register your little ones:
Every school will host a special registration day called kinderSTARt.
“KinderSTARt is a special one day event held in each of our schools for parent to register their children for Kindergarten. It is also a great opportunity for parents and children to learn more about school together. The program is offered in partnership with the Best Start community service partners. Through KinderSTARt children and parents have an early opportunity to visit the school and meet staff in preparation for Full Day Kindergarten in the fall of 2015. We also welcome younger siblings (18 months – 3 years) to attend. Our Community Partners are there to offer helpful information about getting ready for school, such as ages and stages growth development, good nutrition and healthy living tips and immunization.
It is important that parents register their children at this time to allow schools to plan class sizes. It is not necessary to re-register for Senior Kindergarten if your child is presently attending Junior Kindergarten in a Lambton Kent public elementary school.
