Schools may be closed but kindergarten registration is open for the 2020-21 school year!
Kindergarten is a special time and place in the life of a young child and Saskatoon Public Schools is dedicated to embracing every student in a safe and welcoming environment.
If your child will be five years old by Jan. 31, 2021, your child can start kindergarten in the fall of 2020. Staff at all neighbourhood schools are ready to provide information and accept kindergarten registration via email or phone calls during the period of school closure.
A complete list of all schools along with school websites and contact information is available on the Saskatoon Public Schools website. Each school website has registration information along with a link to the 2020-21 registration form and instructions on how to fill out and submit the form.
Saskatoon Public Schools understands the importance of early learning and literacy. Our kindergarten classes are small to encourage individualized education and include a strong literacy component in kindergarten.
Kindergarten classes are offered on either a half-day, every day or full-day, alternating day format, depending upon the school. Details are available on the kindergarten information page at saskatoonpublicschools.ca/kindergarten.
