What Will My Child Learn in Kindergarten?

Kindergarten is an exciting place for your child to grow, learn and explore through guided-play and inquiry-based learning. Our faith-based kindergarten programs welcome children of all abilities and nurture the physical, emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual needs of your child. 

If you are registering for the 2021-2022 school year please review the range of programs offered including: full day, half day and progressive.

More information is available on the District website, or by contacting our office directly. 


Bertha Kennedy Catholic School is now accepting Kindergarten Registrations for the 2022-2023 school year! Please follow the link below:

New Student Registration Form - Students who do not have an active GSACRD enrolment for the 2022-2023 school year.


Please note: To attend kindergarten your child must be five years of age on or before December 31 of the school year currently enrolled. Your child could start kindergarten in September at the age of four, as long as he or she turns five on or before December 31.

Registrations are ongoing at Greater St. Albert Catholic Schools. For planning and funding purposes, student registration is encouraged by the end of March for the upcoming school year. We ask that all new students register at the school they will be attending as soon as possible to ensure a space in the program of their choice. For registration during the summer months, please use our online registration system or contact District Office for additional support. Registrations are accepted until September 30th. Please call your preferred school for registration and program information. 

In most cases, students attend the designated school within the attendance boundary of where they live (see attendance areas). While we try to accommodate all students wishing to attend Greater St. Albert Catholic Schools, there are occasions when non-resident students are not accepted to the school of their choice. If the school is full to capacity or non-resident students require special education services, they may be offered a choice to attend another school and may be required to pay a cross-boundary transportation fee, if yellow bus service is required.

Registration Documents

For pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students, and for students new to Greater St. Albert Catholic Schools (including homeschooling and cyber school), legal proof of the student's name, residency and guardianship will be required when you register. Please provide the school with photocopies of required documents, which will be placed in your child's Alberta Education Official Student Record.

Please review Documentation for New Students for specific requirements.
