Do you have a child who will start kindergarten in September 2023? Welcome!
Registration for regular kindergarten and the district’s two programs of choice opens at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, January 17th and remains open for the rest of the school year. We are looking forward to welcoming you and your child to North Okanagan School District No. 83!
You will need to register at your child’s catchment school (based on your physical address) or specialty school (Bastion for Early French Immersion or South Canoe for Outdoor Learning). If you are interested in Early French Immersion for your child please read this. For information on SD83’s Outdoor Learning Program please contact South Canoe School for an information package.

All Kindergarten registrations completed on Tuesday, January 17th are treated as “equal”, so there is no need for line-ups on that day. Registrations received after January 17th, will be date/time stamped and treated on a first come, first served basis. This information will be used to determine placement IF catchment area schools or programs are full. Students with siblings already registered in a Program of Choice (French Immersion or Outdoor Learning) will be given priority if there is limited space.
Online registration is also available. To register online please contact the school you are registering at for a link.
If you have any questions about the Kindergarten registration process, please contact: Jennifer Findlay,Director of Instruction, at firstname.lastname@example.org .
