Kindergarten registration begins on Wednesday, March 1, 2023. Registration packages are available at all schools and on their websites at Documents & Forms > Registration. Contact your child's designated school or visit their website for information about their registration process.
In RETSD, kindergarten is full-day, every-other-day. Before they start school, students will receive a school-year calendar showing which days they will attend—even or odd. These days are marked with either little caterpillars or ladybugs, representing the two groups of kindergarten students. You can see examples at Calendars.
To find out which RETSD school is your child's designated school, use our web-based School Locator. Simply type in your street name or postal code and follow the prompts to see your child's early, middle, and senior years school, as well as their designated schools for language programs.
When registering your child for school in RETSD, you will need to provide proof-of-age documentation for your child (e.g., birth certificate, baptismal certificate, passport, Manitoba Health Card, INAC status card, birth registration signed by the director of Vital Statistics), as well as two pieces of identification for proof of residency (e.g., driver’s licence, Manitoba Health Card, tenancy agreement, offer to purchase documents, utility bill).
If you are unsure of your designated school or need help filling out the registration forms, call our Administration Offices at 204.667.7130 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to assist you.
