We invite your little one to join OCSB’s Kindergarten program for the 2024-2025 school year. It’s a fantastic opportunity to lay a strong foundation for your child’s academic journey and help them achieve their full potential. Register your child now and give them a great start to their education. If your child turns four in 2024, they can start their journey with OCSB in September.
Everyone is welcome
We warmly welcome children of all faiths to be a part of the Ottawa Catholic School Board. Discover our dynamic, bilingual Kindergarten program and our innovative approach to education on our website’s Kindergarten page. We look forward to hearing from you!
What about daycare?
We offer an option for child care in almost every elementary school. These are Board-run Extended Day Programs (EDP) or licensed child care centres. Our Child Care page has more details on these programs and information about Ontario’s lowered childcare fees. If you have more questions about EDP, look at the FAQ we have put together.
Where can I find the Kindergarten registration form?
Kindergarten registration is as easy as “A-B-C”. You can register your child by completing the online form on the Registration page. On that page, you’ll also learn which documents you need to register and how to find your child’s neighbourhood school.
What happens next?
After you submit your Kindergarten registration form, you can expect to receive a welcome email from your child’s new school. The email will contain a link to a toolkit with various activities and helpful tips to help your child prepare for school. Additionally, in May, each OCSB school will hold an open house where you and your family can visit your child’s school, see the Kindergarten classroom, and meet the educators in person. Visit our Board website frequently for more Kindergarten information on preparing your little one for their first day of school.
