When Can My Child Start Kindergarten?
To register for Kindergarten in the 2018- 2019 school year, your child must be five years old on or before December 31, 2018.
To assist in our planning for next year, we encourage families to register their new Kindergartners.
We are pleased to offer a number of different times for families to visit us as a great opportunity to tour our school, meet the teachers, and learn more about our program. Please give us a call to arrange a convenient time.
Our Kindergarten classrooms provide literacy-rich, play-based programming led by welcoming and dedicated early childhood teachers and enthusiastic educational assistants. In addition, all of our early learners have access to our division's School Linked Team to help your child succeed. This team's dedicated members include: a speech-language pathologist, occupational therapist, behaviour consultant, literacy/early learning lead teacher, technology lead teacher, Family School Liaison counsellor and a Success Coach.
At Jasper Elementary School, we are pleased to offer both English and French Immersion programming beginning at the Kindergarten level.
Family engagement is one of our priorities at Jasper Elementary School as your involvement is a key component in the success of your child's learning. We encourage you to get involved in your school community such as joining the School Council at our school, volunteering at our school, or by talking with your child's teacher.
