KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​School District No. 43 (Coquitlam) is pleased to welcome all new students to our schools.​

Children who are five years old on or before December 31, 2021 may enter school in September 2022. You may defer your child's enrollment until September 2023. Please contact your catchment school for more information.​

​​Due to Covid-19, we have adjusted our Kindergarten Registration process as outlined below. To ensure the safety of our students and staff, we ask that you do not visit schools directly to register unless you have made prior arrangements.​​

​​​Families who applied for a Kindergarten Program of Choice will need to wait to see if they are placed in a Program of Choice before submitting a registration package.  Families should only submit one registration package to their assigned Program of Choice school (if placed in a program) or their catchment school (if not placed in a program and waitlisted).​


​​​Instructions for Kindergarten Registratio​n

Step 1: Use the School Locator tool to determine your catchment school.

To use our School Locator tool, simply type in your street name and follow the instructions.


Step 2: Download the Kindergarten Registration Package on your device.

It is recommended that you download the Kindergarten Registration Package using a computer (PC or Mac). 

Mobile phone, iPad or tablet is not recommended.

​If you are unable to complete the package on a computer, please contact your catchment school to pick up a paper copy of the form at a pre-arranged time. 

The Kindergarten Registration Package includes the following:

  • Instructions on how to send your Kindergarten Registration Package electronically (Step 5)

  • Student Registration Form

  • Funding Eligibility Checklist - a list of required documents showing proof of citizenship, your child's legal name, proof of BC residency and proof of guardianship verified in-person at your school by appointment.​​

​​Step 3: Complete the Kindergarten Registration Package. 

Save it on your device as "K Reg for [Name of Child]".

​

Step 4: Prepare the required documents for registration.

Families have the option of sending scans/photos of all required documents. 

If a school receives all of the required documents, there will be no need for families to visit the school in person to have their documents verified.  Schools may still need to request an in-person appointment if the documents are incomplete or inaccurate. 

If you choose not to email your documents, you will be contacted by the school to schedule a time for you to bring in the required documents for verification.

  • Proof of citizenship for parent & child (one of): birth certificate; passport; PR Card; Canadian Citizenship Card.

  • Proof of B.C. residency for parent (one of): rental contract; property purchase contract; income tax statement; property tax statement;
