Register for School-Registering for Kindergarten

Durham District School Board (DDSB) requires online registration for all new students entering Kindergarten. We are here to help you and your child find a school and transition into Kindergarten.

Register for Kindergarten

To register a child in Kindergarten:

  1. Use the school locator tool to find schools designated as the home school in your area;
  2. Create a parent account or log in to your existing account;
  3. Add a student to the account;
  4. Add additional students for other grades to the account now, if you have them.

If you want to request to register your child for a school outside of your home's designation, view the Permission to Enrol a Student procedure.

Age requirements for registration

Your child must meet the following age requirements to enter Kindergarten:

  • To register for Junior Kindergarten, your child must be 4 years old by December 31 in the current year
  • To register for Senior Kindergarten, your child must be 5 years old by December 31 in the current year

Home schooling

You may also choose to home school your child instead of enrolling them in Kindergarten.
