Kindergarten Program 2020-21

Under Resources is a document called Parent Communication which is filled with information and live links that further explain many different aspects of the CBE and of Belfast School.  

What do I need to know before September?

During the current health emergency when access to school buildings is being limited for everyone’s safety we have had to cancel the following events:

“Welcome to Kindergarten” Orientation: Thursday, 21 May was Cancelled.

Sadly we were unable to meet you and your child in person, before the new school year begins, but we endeavour to keep you informed on what you need to know to get your child ready to join our school community.

The following document is filled with helpful information along with live links to many documents that further explains the how’s, the what’s and further information for all new parents to familiarize yourself prior to the first day of kindergarten.

Getting ready for Kindergarten

Starting Kindergarten is an exciting adventure full of promise. Before the school year begins there are a number of ways that you can help prepare your child for this important experience. Talking about Belfast School and helping your child feel excited about their new adventure will make a positive difference.
