Children born in 2010 can start kindergarten in September 2014. Peel District School Board schools are hosting kindergarten registration on Feb. 4, 5, 6 and 7 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and on Feb. 6 from 5 to 8 p.m. To find out what school their child will attend, parents can call 905-890-1010/1-800-668-1146 ext. 2212.

“We invite families to begin the journey with us by registering their children for kindergarten—I know school staff are eager to meet our new kindergarten students and families—it’s always an exciting time,” says Tony Pontes, director of education. “At the Peel board, we want to do everything we can to ensure the registration process is as easy and convenient as possible for families.”
