Learning, Caring, Exploring: Kindergarten in the OCDSB

Starting Kindergarten is an exciting adventure for children. Supported by a caring team of educators, children learn to explore the world, solve problems and make friends. All of our elementary schools offer a full-day, two-year, fully bilingual kindergarten program where students start their education journey in a safe and welcoming environment.


If your child will be 4 years old by December 31, 2022, they are ready for kindergarten in the OCDSB. Our schools are hosting Virtual Parent Information nights where you can learn more about kindergarten and meet the staff team at your local school. Visit our Kindergarten webpage to join an information session and register for kindergarten.


Here’s a look inside some of the kindergarten classes across the District. Check out how students are exploring and building community together!

Dynamic Play-Based Learning

Our kindergarten classes are spaces where curiosity, exploration and imagination can flourish. Through play-based learning, children investigate and develop an understanding of their world. Check out some of the discoveries happening inside our classrooms:


A Caring Community

Kindergarten at the OCDSB is a safe and inclusive learning environment, where every child is welcome - regardless of faith, race, language, gender or background. Our caring team of educators is here to support students, so that each child is seen, heard and knows they matter within the OCDSB community.

A Fully Bilingual Program

All of our kindergarten classes incorporate 50% French language instruction. This means that children will experience the program equally in French and in English, providing a rich exposure to both of Canada's official languages.
