A place to welcome new families, list important information they will need.

Please come in to the office to register your children for Kindergarten in the fall.  It is best to do this right away so we know our numbers and we are given the proper number of teachers. Waiting until the summer can be too late for staffing!

If you know of a neighbour or family member or friend who lives in our area and has a child ready to start school, please tell them to drop by the office.  We will need a copy of the birth certificate and proof of address and are happy to help fill out the forms.

If you know you are moving and your child will be attending a different school in the fall, please let the office know as soon as possible.

If you are new to the area or your child is starting kindergarten soon, then you are in the right place! We have many resources to help get you started.


Not sure if you fall into the Cedar Elementary catchment? Check out our School Locator to see your school catchment!

Please Note* Registration begins in January for the following September. Please bring your child’s birth certificate and proof of address when registering.
