Starting school is a big step for children and their parents or guardians, and the Halton District School Board (HDSB) says it wants to make the transition as smooth as possible.

The HDSB is welcoming future students and their families to a virtual kindergarten experience at to learn more about making the first school experience a happy one.

At, three-year-olds can explore a kindergarten classroom to see what their future classroom might look like next September, the board said in a news release.

There are videos to watch, pictures to view and fun activities for kids.

Parents and/or guardians can learn about the kindergarten program at the HDSB, play-based learning, community resources in Halton and before- and after-school care.

Families can also sign up to receive a welcome package from the HDSB including a free children’s book.

Registration for kindergarten begins in January and will be by appointment only (in-person and/or virtual) through the school the child will attend.

Further information will be shared in the new year, the board said.

To begin in September 2023, children must be four years old by Dec. 31, 2023 for junior kindergarten and five years old by Dec. 31, 2023 for senior kindergarten.
