Kindergarten Orientation 2022-23
Dear Cambrian Heights School 2022-23 kindergarten families,
Welcome! Below is some information about next school year.
Thank you to those of you who were able to attend our orientation on May 26. The presentation slides will soon be available as PDF on this page.
School and Classroom Visits
We will have a time for a school visit at the end of August, when the new kindergarten space is set up. If you feel your child has a unique situation that would require an early transition visit, please contact us.
2022-23 Kindergarten Calendar and Kindergarten Hours
School hours and calendar for 2022-23 will be confirmed in June. You will receive a staggered entry schedule for the first two weeks of school. Your child will not attend every day during the staggered entry. Our current school hours are 7:58 –10:50 for AM and 11:40-2:30 for PM, with selected Fridays 7:58-11:55.
AM/PM Class Placement
We expect that we will have enough students registered for an AM and PM class in September, however, if we receive less students than expected, we would create a single AM class. We have done our best to honor your preferences for AM or PM class and are unable to make any further changes at this time.
Transportation and Before/After School Care
There is one-way bus transportation for Kindergarten: to school for the AM class and home from school for the PM class. Students can ride the bus both ways on Fridays. Families are responsible for mid-day transportation Monday-Thursday. We have (Children) Kids Come First before/after school care located within our school. This is a private rental group not associated with CBE. Please contact them if you are interested in more information.
Families need to pre-register for transportation by June 8. If you do not pre-register there could be up to a 6-week wait before your child can ride the bus in September.
