Kindergarten registration begins next week for the Greater Victoria School District.

From Jan. 20-24, parents can register children for the September 2020 Kindergarten year. Eligible children will be five years old by Dec. 31, 2020.

Parents will need to enroll their children at the school in their catchment boundaries, which will be updated for the 2020-21 school year.

“It is important to remind families that new school catchment boundaries will be in effect for the upcoming school year, which may affect where they register their child for Kindergarten,” said Superintendent Shelley Green in a statement.

“There were a number of changes to school boundaries, including the introduction of three new elementary catchments: South Park, Cloverdale and Sundance-Bank. We want to ensure that new students and families joining our district feel very welcomed and are off to a strong start by being well-informed and ready for the upcoming registration process.”
