Kindergarten in the Public School System

 

“Welcome to Kindergarten” is a preschool readiness program designed for parents/guardians and their children. It provides parents/guardians with tools and resources to engage their children in early learning experiences prior to Kindergarten.

Each school hosts a Welcome to Kindergarten session.  Click here for dates and times

Registration - Registration for the coming year of kindergarten is generally held in November.  Dates will be published in local media.
Implementation - Kindergarten became part of the PEI public school system in September 2010.  For the 2010/2011 school year, both kindergarten and grade 1 were school entry points for students.  In September 2011, kindergarten became the point of entry for all students.
