Registering for School

Registration for Grade Primary at AVRCE schools takes place from January to May of each year. Each school also organizes orientation days for children entering Grade Primary. To register for Grade Primary, a child must reach their fifth (5th) birthday on or before December 31 of the year they enter school.

If you are new to the region, contact the school serving your new address at any time during the school year to register your child. During the summer, school offices are open for four working days after the last day of school, and reopen five working days before the first day of school.

When you register your child for school, please remember to bring a birth certificate, passport or immigration papers, if possible, to verify your child's date of birth.

To register, contact your local school. If you're not sure which school serves your home address, you can find your school online or by calling the AVRCE Transportation Division at 902-538-4641 (toll free 1-800-850-3887).
