Welcome to Kindergarten! This is an exciting time for both you and your student. Kindergarten is a wonderful experience and your student’s next phase on their journey of learning.  

We are now accepting new student registrations for this September 2024. If your student is four or five by the end of December, now is the time to register.

Kindergarten offers a wonderful new world of learning and growing. We learn how to read, how to write and we make new friends. At Ecole Amherstview Public School, we offer both French Immersion and English Kindergarten programs that help children get the best possible start in school. Your student will be challenged and encouraged to do their very best.  

In Kindergarten classrooms, a teacher and an early childhood educator work together as a team. This partnership helps to create a nurturing learning environment; giving every student the opportunity to learn in the way that is best suited to their individual strengths and needs. Our caring team of educators is with them every step of the way!

In Limestone, students can begin French Immersion in Year 1 Kindergarten, Year 2 Kindergarten or Grade 1. The French Immersion program is designed for students who are learning French as an additional language. The program is an inclusive environment for rich language development and designed for students who do not speak French at home. Parents and guardians are not expected to be French speaking themselves. There is nothing extra that you need to do to prepare your student for French Immersion. All students are welcome!

We are excited to announce that Limestone District School Board will now be accepting applications for open boundary Kindergarten registrations for the upcoming school year. LDSB encourages students to attend their area school, but we understand selecting the right educational setting for your new student is a significant decision.

In accordance with Board policy, by default, students will be enrolled in the school designated within their boundary area, based on their home address.

Students may be permitted to attend any school within the board when there is available student space, upon submission and approval of the proper application. The Board will not be held responsible for the provision of any transportation for students outside of their regular school boundary area.

We typically welcome new families to orientation events in May of each year. We will share more about these opportunities soon. 

We want everyone to see themselves in Limestone. You can feel confident your student will be cared for in a safe and inclusive environment.  

We are committed to supporting you every step of the way. Our dedicated staff are here to assist you throughout this process. If you have any questions or need more information, please contact the school.

Let’s embark on this exciting educational journey together!

We look forward to meeting you.
