Calling all 3-year-olds: Halton schools host kindergarten open houses

Events this fall allow families to explore a classroom, connect with staff and learn more about before- and after-school care options

Beginning school is a big step for children and their parents and/or guardians, and the Halton District School Board (HDSB) wants to make that transition as smooth as possible, the board said in a news release.

In October and November, the HDSB is hosting Calling All Three-Year Olds Kindergarten Open Houses in Acton, Georgetown, Burlington, Milton and Oakville for families to learn more about making the first school experience a happy one. 

Future students and their families are invited to attend any of the following open houses to be held between 6:30 and 7:30 p.m.:

  1. Acton: Tuesday, Oct. 17 – Robert Little Public School (41 School Ln.)
  2. Georgetown: Tuesday, Oct. 24 – Ethel Gardiner Public School (14365 Danby Rd.)
  3. Milton: Tuesday, Nov. 7 – Irma Coulson Public School (625 Sauve St.)
  4. Burlington: Tuesday, Nov. 14 – Alexander’s Public School (2223 Sutton Dr.)
  5. Oakville: Wednesday, Nov. 29 – Joshua Creek Public School (1450 Arrowhead Rd.)

At the open house, students and parents/guardians will:

  • Explore a kindergarten classroom
  • Learn more about play-based inquiry learning
  • Pick up information, a free children’s book and tote bag
  • Access information from community partners in Halton
  • Get information about before- and after-school care
  • Connect with HDSB staff to learn about supports for students

Registration for kindergarten begins in January 2024 and will be conducted in-person or virtually through the school the child will attend. Children born in 2020 can start kindergarten in September 2024. 

Parents/guardians with questions about the open houses can visit the Kindergarten webpage on the HDSB website (hdsb.ca).
