Pre-enrolment for Kindergarten and Grade 1
The District has specific pre-enrolment and registration processes for children entering Kindergarten and Grade 1.
Kindergarten placements are not based on a first-come, first-served basis. Schools can only assign students into classes after pre-enrolment closes on April 15.
When assigning students, the principal is responsible for organizing students into classes.
Children who are five years old on or before December 31, 2020 may register in Kindergarten for the 2020-21 school year.
Grade 1 age
Children must start Grade 1 if they are six years old or older on September 1 of the same school year.
Transitioning from Pre-Kindergarten program to Kindergarten
Children currently attending Pre-Kindergarten will pre-enrol for Kindergarten through SchoolZone starting on March 9.
Some families may be concerned about space, knowing that new students can submit registration in February. Families that are pre-enrolling through SchoolZone starting March 9 does not put their children at a disadvantage for placement.
Children will be guaranteed entry to their designated school for Kindergarten if they pre-enrol no later than April 15.
At Forest Heights, we are committed to encouraging and supporting students as partners in their learning and as active participants in the school community. We develop learners who realize that their effort is the greatest factor to achieving their goals. We facilitate this by analyzing student work to determine next steps in learning and to ensure students are receiving the instruction that will lead to their success. As we make students part of this process by sharing with them the goals of the learning, they become more engaged in the monitoring of their growth. The students then become key in sharing their growth with their families. Our purpose is to help them understand themselves as learners so they can use this knowledge to learn, achieve and growth to their full potential. Through class work, school wide programs, student council and a variety of special events and activities, students have the opportunity to see themselves as active members of our community. All members of the school community contribute to the safe, caring and welcoming environment of the school.
