Kindergarten registration begins in Surrey

All public schools will offer full-day classes this fall.

Registration for children entering kindergarten this September begins this week in Surrey.

Kids who turn five before Jan. 1, 2012 are eligible to start school this fall. Whereas many Surrey kindergarten classes this year remained half-day programs, beginning this September, all kindergarten classes will be full day.

Kindergarten registration can be done at your nearest elementary school beginning Jan. 17. For locations, check www.sd36.bc.ca/findaschool.html or call 604-592-4272.

The following must be provided:

• Proof of birth date for the student (birth certificate or passport);

• Proof of guardianship (parents/guardians’ as shown on birth certificate or other appropriate legal documentation);

• Proof of citizenship for both the parents and the students (birth certificate, citizenship card, passport, landed immigrant document, permanent resident card);

• Proof of residency (purchase or rental agreement, property tax document, Hydro or gas bill). Health-related documents such as immunization records or medical condition information are helpful, but not required.

Early French immersion, traditional, intensive fine arts and Montessori programs have phone-in registration only, which began last week. For a list of Surrey’s Choice programs and contact information, visit www.sd36.bc.ca/general/programs/specialty.html

Kindergarten registration in Delta takes place through February.
