We know that early childhood education plays a key role in getting your children ready for school. It helps develop some of the qualities they need to make the most of their school years such as language, social skills, emotional maturity, physical health, and the ability to express ideas. Children who are ready for school tend to have good language skills, are eager to learn and bring positive attitudes into the classroom.
Children who are five years old before December 31, 2017 are eligible to register for Kindergarten. Each school in the St. James- Assiniboia School Division is hosting an Information Evening to provide you with an opportunity to meet the teachers and learn more about school programs.
The following Kindergarten Information Evenings will begin at 7:00 p.m. Registrations will be accepted by schools beginning on Friday, January 27, 2017.

Discovery Children’s Centre will not accept Kindergarten children in our program if they require child care services from us during the morning. (9-11:30am)
Please Note: Discovery Children’s Centre is not responsible for registering your child for kindergarten or for bussing arrangements. These arrangements must be made by you, the parents. We would appreciate knowing which school you have selected for your child. Please leave this information with your child’s teacher.
If your child is registered for Kindergarten at Assiniboine School you may apply for school bus transportation through the St. James-Assiniboia School Division. It is offered to children who are in Kindergarten through Grade 6. The child must reside within the St. James-Assiniboia School Division in the Assiniboine School catchment area and either North of Portage Ave or 1 Kilometer from the school if residing south of Portage Ave. You will not be guaranteed a space on the school bus if you do not live in the “catchment area”. Even if your child has a “seat on the bus” for the first year, there is no guarantee for the following year(s). You must re-apply each year.
