Kindergarten Registration

Kindergarten Registration opens Monday, January 22, 2018. Students must register with their neighbourhood catchment school.

The Abbotsford School District is proud to offer a wide range of educational options for all different types of learners, in addition to excellent neighbourhood schools. We also offer District Programs of choice that include French ImmersionIntegrated Arts, Nature Kindergarten and Traditional Schools.

Registration begins every January for children who will begin school the following September, via a Gradual Entry process.

So how do I register?

  1. Enter your primary home address into our School Locator portal to determine your neighbourhood catchment school. 
  2. Register with your neighbourhood catchment school - regardless of where you want to send your child.
  3. Was your child born outside of Canada?
    Set up an appointment with the School Board office to complete initial registration.
  4. Was your child born in Canada?
    Complete the Student Registration form and take your registration to your neighbourhood catchment school.

What if I want to apply for a District Program?

Parents must register at their neighbourhood catchment school before applying for District Programs. A lottery draw process is used for our District Programs. For specific registration information, contact the school. By late February you should hear back whether you have a space in the school or program. If you have not heard back by mid-February, please contact the school Principal of your neighborhood catchment school and they will help you find out about your child’s status.

What if I want to apply to a school in different neighbourhood catchment?

If you are interested in having your child attend a school that is not your catchment school, then you will need to apply through the cross-boundary application process. Applications will be reviewed by the requested school beginning February 2018. The cross-boundary application deadline is February 2018. Cross-boundary applications will only be considered once all catchment students have been accommodated. Application does not guarantee acceptance.

Where can I get more information or help if I run into any difficulties?

For further assistance with the registration process or the online District program application process, contact your neighbourhood catchment school. They will be happy to assist you.
