Online Kindergarten registration now open for next school year

Children born in 2017 can start school in September 2021

The Peel District School Board is now accepting online kindergarten registrations for the 2021-22 school year. Registration is open for families of children born in 2017, as well as for children born in 2016 who did not enroll previously due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. To find out what school their child will attend, families can use the Find Your School tool on the board's website.

At the Peel District School Board, Kindergarten is a place to play, wonder and learn. As co-learners, educators plan intentional play-based learning experiences that encourage children to explore, discover, and problem-solve. Families bring diverse social and cultural perspectives and are welcomed as valuable contributors to their children's learning.
