ECS Registrations for 2015-16 School Year
Do you know a child who will start Kindergarten in fall 2015? Registration for the 2015-2016 school year will start early in January. Children are eligible to enroll in Kindergarten for the upcoming school year if they will be five years old on or before December 31, 2015.
Check out the Elk Island Public Schools division website at www.eips.ca/kindergarten for information about Kindergarten programs, registration details, and division information. The 2015-2016 Kindergarten guide, Kindergarten: It’s Only the Beginning will soon be available online and in free magazine racks throughout the community.

Please read below for very important information regarding a new proposal for our ECS Programs for next year:
We have had parents express interest in having full-day Kindergarten classes at Pine Street. In the past, we have offered a half-day program- two classes in the morning and two classes in the afternoon.
We are exploring the option of running two full day Kindergarten programs along with one morning and one afternoon half day program. This would be dependent on whether we had the required enrolment numbers and interest in running the Kindergarten classes in this manner.
The half-day program would run every day, Monday – Friday, either in the morning or the afternoon. The full-day program would run either on Monday and Thursday, alternating Wednesdays or Tuesday and Friday, alternating Wednesdays.
When you register your child, you will be asked to state your preferences: half-day program or full-day program. If choosing the half-day program, you will need to indicate morning or afternoon preference. If choosing a full-day program you will need to indicate a Mon/Thurs or Tues/Friday option.
Registration for Kindergarten begins in January after classes resume on January 5th. Be sure to bring your child’s birth certificate or passport in order to complete the registration process. Your child must be 5 years old by December 31st, 2015, in order to register.
Placement will be based on a first come, first serve basis. We will do our best to honour your preferences; however there is no guarantee that we will be able to accommodate them all.
The decision to have a full-day Kindergarten program will be dependent on whether the required enrolment numbers are reached for two full classes. If it is not reached, we will return to offering two morning and two afternoon programs. If you have any questions, please contact Evelyn Gaudet at the school.
