    WHEN CAN MY CHILD START KINDERGARTEN?
    Children who are five years old on or before December 31, 2021 may enter school in September 2021. You may defer your child’s enrolment until September 2022.

    WHEN SHOULD I REGISTER MY CHILD?
    Kindergarten registration (except for Programs of Choice - Montessori, Mandarin Bilingual, Reggio and French Immersion) within School District No. 43 (Coquitlam) will be held between January 27 and February 4, 2021 using the online forms on your catchment school’s website.

    INTERESTED IN REGISTERING YOUR CHILD IN ONE OF OUR PROGRAMS OF CHOICE?
    For Program of Choice application process, deadlines and online presentations, visit www.sd43.bc.ca/programs

    HOW DO I KNOW MY CHILD’S CATCHMENT SCHOOL?
    All students must be registered for Kindergarten at their catchment school. Catchment is based on permanent home address.
    To determine your catchment school, use the School Locator on our website.

    HOW DO I APPLY FOR CROSS CATCHMENT FOR MY CHILD?
    All Kindergarten students must be registered for Kindergarten at their catchment school before completing a Cross Catchment application. Applications for cross catchment transfers will be accepted February 5 to February 10, 2021.
    Kindergarten students who have a sibling at a school outside their catchment will be accepted at the sibling’s school (provided the sibling will still be in attendance the following school year) and are requested to register at their sibling’s school between January 27 and February 4, 2021. Therefore, Kindergarten parents do not need to fill out a Cross Catchment application verifying sibling status. The exception to this is for a Program of Choice. Parents must complete the online Kindergarten Programs of Choice application for siblings to attend the same program.
    Kindergarten children with siblings in a Program of Choice must still apply online.

    CAN I USE MY CHILDCARE FACILITY ADDRESS TO DETERMINE MY CHILD’S CATCHMENT SCHOOL?
    No. According to the School Act, enrolment can only be based on the home address.

    WHAT DOCUMENTS ARE REQUIRED FOR REGISTERING MY CHILD?
    View the “Funding Eligibility Checklist” for documentation required for registration at www.sd43.bc.ca/programs.

    ARE YOU A NON-RESIDENT OF CANADA?

    Please contact the International Education Department at 604-936-5769, or visit www.internationaled.com.
    Bring along proof of citizenship for parent and student, proof of residency, and proof of guardianship (if applicable).
