​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 Sep. 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 for Kindergarten

Registration for the 2018-19 school year will begin on Jan. 22, 2018 for traditional calendar schools such as ours.

How to Register

To register your child in kindergarten, please:

  1. Bring the completed registration form, your child’s proof of age and legal name (birth certificate or passport) and proof of your address (the principal may ask to see one or more of the following: driver’s licence, municipal/federal correspondence, financial/residential documents or a utility bill) to the school

Once your school has registered the student, you will be able to access your My CBE 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.
