Learn about registering your child for Kindergarten in the Yukon

The Department of Education is hosting a Zoom webinar about Kindergarten registration and Early French Immersion Kindergarten programs on Wednesday, January 24, at 7 pm.

All Yukon parents and guardians are invited to attend this information session to learn about the registration process, program details and to have their questions answered by department staff.

Yukon children who will be five years old by December 31, 2024, are eligible to start Kindergarten this coming school year.

Online registration for Kindergarten at all Whitehorse schools opens on Thursday, February 1. This includes French Immersion Kindergarten programs (at École Selkirk Elementary and École Whitehorse Elementary), First Nation School Board schools (Takhini Elementary and Grey Mountain Primary) and Catholic schools.

Registration for rural community schools is in person at the school at any time before the school year starts.
