​When a Child Can Begin Kindergarten

Use our Kindergarten calculator to see when your child is eligible to attend Kindergarten. 

2020: Children can start kindergarten in the fall of 2020 if they turn 5 years old on or before Dec. 31, 2020. This change is the result of amendments to the School Act made by the provincial government in Dec. 2017 that requires a common age of entry for all Alberta school boards effective for the 2020-21 school year.

Note: If your child is born between Jan. 1 and Mar. 1 2016 they will be eligible to start kindergarten in 2021.​

Note: your child must start Grade 1 if they are six years of age or older on Sep. 1.

When to Register for Kindergarten

Registration for the 2020-21 school year will begin on Jan. 20, 2020 for traditional calendar schools such as ours.

How to Register

  1. Complete the Student Registration Form.
  2. Bring the following documents to your designated school (regular program or alternative program):
    • completed registration form
    • child’s proof of age and legal name (birth certificate or passport)
    • proof of your address (driver’s licence, municipal/federal correspondence, financial/residential documents or a utility bill)

Note: If your child is not a Canadian citizen, please call 403-777-7373 to make an appointment to register at Kingsland Centre (7430 – 5 Street SW).

More information on kindergarten can be found on our kindergarten webpage.
