Rocky View Schools has announced that Kindergarten registration for the 2023/24 school year will open for all schools on Monday, January 23, 2023.  

In RVS, Kindergarten is offered as a half-day program in the majority of schools with a select few offering a full-day program on alternating days.  

Parents will be able to voice their preference for morning or afternoon placement and depending on space, later in the spring children will be placed into a kindergarten program.  

Registration is accepted throughout the year, however, RVS encourages registering early as it will help families and schools plan for a successful transition and provides RVS with information to have teachers and resources in place.  

Rocky View Schools Superintendent Greg Luterbach says, “Our Kindergarten programs build on what children have already learned at home and in the community and starts them on the path towards early literacy and math skills, students also develop important social and problem-solving skills and begin developing positive attitudes and behaviours towards learning and school.” 

Alberta’s standardized age of Kindergarten entry requires students to turn five years old by December 31 of the school year they begin Kindergarten. This means children born between January 1 and December 31, 2018, can register for Kindergarten for the 2023/24 school year. 

All new registrations for the Kindergarten program will need to be completed through SchoolEngage which is RVS’ online registration portal.  

Schools will offer computer access to families that do not have a computer during operational hours.
