Beginning school is a big step and the Halton District School Board wants to make that transition as smooth as possible for kids and families in Oakville, Burlington, Milton and Halton Hills.

In October and November, the HDSB is hosting kindergarten open houses across the region for families to learn more about making the first school experience a happy one.

Young students and their families are invited to attend any of the following open houses, which are being held from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.:

  • Acton: Tuesday, Oct. 17 – Robert Little Public School, 41 School Lane
  • Georgetown: Tuesday, Oct. 24 – Ethel Gardiner Public School, 14365 Danby Rd.

  • Burlington: Tuesday, Nov. 14 – Alexander’s Public School, 2223 Sutton Dr.
  • Oakville: Wednesday, Nov. 29 – Joshua Creek Public School, 1450 Arrowhead Rd.

At the open house sessions, students and parents/guardians will explore a kindergarten classroom, learn more about play-based inquiry learning, pick up information, a free children’s book and tote bag, access information from Community Partners in Halton, get information about before and after school care and connect with HDSB staff to learn about supports for students

Registration for kindergarten begins in January and will be conducted in-person or virtually through the school the child will attend. Children born in 2020 can start kindergarten in September 2024.

Parents/guardians with questions about the Calling all Three-year-olds Kindergarten Open Houses can visit the HDSB website.
