Starting school is a big step for children and parents/guardians, and the HDSB wants to make that transition as smooth as possible. This fall, the HDSB is welcoming future students and their families to a virtual Kindergarten experience at kindergarten.hdsb.ca to learn more about making the first school experience a happy one.

At kindergarten.hdsb.ca:

  • Three-year olds can explore a Kindergarten classroom to see what their future classroom might look like next September.

  • There are videos to watch, pictures to view and fun activities for kids.

  • Parents/guardians can learn about the Kindergarten program at the HDSB, play-based learning, community resources in Halton and before-and-after school care.

  • Families can sign-up to receive a welcome package from the HDSB including a free children’s book.

Registration for Kindergarten begins in January 2021 and will be by appointment only (in-person and/or virtual) through the school your child will attend. Further information will be shared in the new year.
