All elementary schools in Kawartha Pine Ridge District School Board offer two-year, full-day, every day Kindergarten programs to four and five year old children. 

We have warm, welcoming Kindergarten classrooms that stimulate and encourage children to reach their full potential. Kindergarten establishes strong foundations for success at school, and in life beyond school. In our safe, inclusive classrooms, children learn through play in developmentally-appropriate ways! 

Kindergarten programs are child-centred, promoting the physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development of all children. Our responsive teachers and registered early childhood educators look forward to welcoming your little one!

Early Years Experiences Survey

Parents of new Kindergarten students are being asked to participate in a voluntary Ministry of Education survey. The survey asks questions about your child’s participation in child care and other activities in the community from birth until today and will take about five minutes to complete.

If you complete your Kindergarten registration online, you will be asked to complete the survey during the online process. If you complete the paper registration form, the survey is not included.
