The Langley School District welcomes new kindergarten students to our schools. Our teachers and staff are excited to meet your family. All children who will be five years old by December 31, 2023 (children born in 2018) are eligible for the Kindergarten program beginning September 5, 2023. Registration for Kindergarten will begin on the third Monday in January of the year for which the child is eligible. This year registration begins on Monday, January 16, 2023.
If you still need to register for the 2022-2023 school year, please contact your catchment school.
If you require translation assistance to help with registration, the District’s Settlement Workers in Schools department will be offering presentations in multiple languages. See information here.
Please review the following information outlining documents needed and instructions to help register new learners. To find your child’s catchment school, use our school locator tool here.
It is important to note, children who have been accepted into Kindergarten entry at a District Choice Program for the 2023-2024 school year do not need to register at their catchment school.
