KinderStart/Bon d├ępart

KinderStart is a school transition program offered in the year prior to Kindergarten entry. The program consists of five to ten one-hour orientation sessions organized and promoted at the school level for children and their parents/caregivers. The sessions support children's adjustment to the school environment, and provide parents/caregivers with information on how to support their children's learning at home.

During the first KinderStart session, children and their parents/caregivers are provided with a bag of learning resources and suggestions for home activities.

Registration for KinderStart is automatic when parents/caregivers register their child for Kindergarten at their designated school.

Registration takes place in the calendar year a child becomes four years of age. Parents/caregivers should watch their local newspapers and school newsletters for more details regarding Kindergarten registration in their area. Parents who have questions regarding KinderStart registration should contact their school district or visit https://www.nlesd.ca/families/kindergartenregistration.jsp.

School principals notify parents/caregivers of the times of all KinderStart sessions in the fall of the given school year. A parent/caregiver session is held to provide a program overview and help parents prepare for their child's first school year.
