Kindergarten Registration

Kindergarten Registration 2024-2025 opens on:

Monday, January 15th, 2024 and will be open until Friday March 1, 2024.

The Langley School District is launching a new online process for Kindergarten registration for the 2024-2025 school year.

Simonds Elementary welcomes new Kindergarten students to our school community. Our teachers and staff are eager to meet your child and your family and get them started on their learning journey.

All children who will be five years old by December 31, 2024 (children born in 2019) are eligible for the Kindergarten program beginning September 3, 2024.

Applications will be approved after the registration period has closed on March 1, 2024. Families can expect notification regarding their child’s application status beginning the week of March 4, 2024, and before the end of April 2024.

  • Please note, schools with high enrolment may take longer than expected to accept applications due to volume of applicants and to ensure accuracy and equity in the process.
