The Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board is accepting Kindergarten registrations for September 2023.
Registering your child for Kindergarten is an important milestone. The Kindergarten program in our schools recognizes the uniqueness of each child and supports learners to reach the fullness of their potential. The learning is rooted in faith and grounded in the understanding that every child is capable, competent, and loved by God.
To enrol in Year 1 of Kindergarten children must be four years old by December 31 of the school year in which they begin.
