Children must be five years of age on or before December 31, 2016 in order to register. Please note this registration process is for the 2015-2016 Kinderstart children who will be in Kindergarten in 2016-2017.

Please note that online registration is required for all areas of the province this year.
For the Labrador, Western and Central regions, online registration will begin at 9:00 a.m. on Monday, May 11th and remain open until 9:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 12th, 2015.

For the Eastern Region, online registration will begin at 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday, May 13th and remain open until 9:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 14th, 2015.

Registration will take place on the Newfoundland and Labrador English School District’s website http://www.nlesd.ca. These times will be for those registering for both English and Early French Immersion programs.

You will need the following in order to complete an online application:

• An MCP number including expiration date;
• An email address in order to receive confirmation of receipt of your application; • Phone contact number and an emergency contact phone number; and,
• An Internet-ready device.

To complete the registration process, proof of address and confirmation of MCP number must be provided in person at the designated school on or before May 29, 2015.

Any parents/guardians requiring Internet access or technical support may visit their zoned school during registration times for assistance. Please contact your zoned school by May 6, 2015 to arrange assistance during the registration process.

French Immersion
French Immersion is a program designed for non-francophone children.

Parents/guardians interested in registering a child for the French Immersion Kindergarten Program must select their zoned school. If Early French Immersion is not offered in the zoned school, parents/guardians must select the school closest to their place of residence that offers Early French Immersion. The District reserves the right to make the final decision regarding student acceptance and placement.

Early French Immersion Kindergarten registration takes place on a first-come basis. Applications will be dated and time- stamped upon submission of the online application form. All students are entitled to a program in English so if your

child is waitlisted for Early French Immersion at a school that is not your zoned school, space will be held at the zoned school. Parents/guardians will be provided with further information once class lists for Early French Immersion are finalized in September.

Parents/guardians are advised to visit the NLESD website (www.nlesd.ca) for additional Early French Immersion details, including dates and times of information sessions, specific to your region.
