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.
Registration for the 2020-21 school year will begin on Jan. 20, 2020 for traditional calendar schools such as ours.
If you have questions, please contact the school you are registering at directly.
Note: If your child is not a Canadian citizen, please call 403-817-7789 to make an appointment to register at the CBE Welcome Centre (1221 -8 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.
Please refer to the "Resources" on the right-side navigation bar for current information regarding our Kindergarten programming.
