​When a Child Can Begin Kindergarten

Use our Kindergarten calculator to see when your child is eligible to attend Kindergarten. Under current Alberta Education regulations, your child must be at least four years old on or before Mar. 1 to start Kindergarten in September of the same calendar year.

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

When​ to Register

Registration for the 2019-20 school year will begin on Jan. 14, 2019 for modified calendar schools such as ours.

How to Register

  1. Complete the Student Registration Form.
  2. Bring the following original documents to your designated school (regular program or alternative program):
    • completed registration form
    • child’s proof of age and legal name (birth certificate,  passport or court documents)
    • 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.

Once your school has registered the student, you will be able to create a MyCBE / PowerSchool account. This online account lets you register for services and pay fees.

My ​1st Ride​

The CBE offers a free school bus orientation for first-time riders and their parents/guardians, called My 1st Ride.​​​​​​​​​​​​

Full Day Kindergarten

For the 2018 -19 school year, our school will offer a full-day kindergarten program. The CBE receives funding for half-day kindergarten programs from Alberta Education and as a school system we choose to supplement the half-day funding to provide full-day programs at a small number of schools that meet specific criteria. The list of schools offering full-day programs is reviewed annually and the data used to determine which schools have the greatest need and meet the established criteria. Please be advised that the data used to determine which schools will offer a full-day kindergarten program is updated each spring and the schools that offer full-day kindergarten may change from year to year.
