Kindergarten registration takes place mid-February each year. A child may be registered to attend Kindergarten in September if his or her fifth birthday occurs on or before December 31st of the current year.
The online registration module is now closed. To register your child for Kindergarten for the 2023/2024 school year, please provide the registration form and required documents listed below to your catchment area school.
For verification of your catchment area school, please check the School Locator.
The following documents are required for registration (all documents must be received for registration to be accepted):
- Proof of birth date for the student (birth certificate or passport) (registration will not be accepted until proof of birth date is received).
- Proof of citizenship for both the parent and the student (Canadian birth certificate, citizenship card, passport, landed immigrant document, permanent resident card).
- BC Services Card (please include both sides of this card)
- Proof of Residency (Property Taxes – current receipt, purchase/rental agreement or rental receipt).
Disclaimer: Please note that email is not a secure form of communication. The theft of sensitive information from intercepted emails is an increasing security risk. The Delta School District recommends that parents who choose to email personal and confidential documentation to the schools should use a secure method via an encrypted email to ensure that their privacy is protected.
Alternatively, please call your catchment school to make arrangements to drop off the documentation.
Incomplete information and documents will delay the registration process. Please ensure that all documents included with your child’s registration are legible.
Your catchment area school will process your child’s registration as soon as possible. Once your child has been accepted at their catchment area school, office staff will follow up with parents on additional documents that are needed, such as the Registration Form and Parent Declaration Form.
Registration form is available here.
Parent Declaration form is available here.
*Note: These forms are fillable. Please print and sign the forms if you do not have a digital signature.
Parents should be aware that students may be required to attend a school outside of their usual attendance area if class enrolments exceed 20.
Parents/Guardians of Early French Immersion applicants will be notified by Tuesday, February 8, 2023 if they have been accepted into the program, and what school they should register at the weeks of February 13-24. If your child has been placed on a waitlist, please register at your catchment area school to ensure a placement.
If a parent wishes for a child to attend a school other than their catchment area school, an online non-catchment application form must be completed. Non-catchment applications will be accepted online only commencing February 6, 2023 at 8:30 a.m. Applications received prior to March 3, 2023 will receive priority in their respective category. Approvals will be processed as soon as possible, but may be held until the second week of September, therefore, parents should register their child at their catchment area school the weeks of February 13-24, 2023 to ensure a placement. Schools will hold non-catchment forms until approved by the Assistant Superintendent; no approval of non-catchment requests may be given at the school level.

Non-district students applying for Kindergarten in Delta must complete an online non-district application form. Non-district applications will be accepted online only commencing February 6, 2023 at 8:30 a.m. Applications received prior to March 3, 2023 will receive priority in their respective category. Parents of non-district students should be advised that a decision regarding entry into the Delta Kindergarten program may not be made until the second week of September, therefore, should register for their catchment area school in their home district to ensure a placement. The Assistant Superintendents’ Office will notify each school of the successful non-district applicants. Once the school has received approval from the Assistant Superintendents’ Office, non-district students may then register for the designated school.
Please fill out one Non-Catchment or Non-District Application form only. If you have a second and/or third choice, please make note of them on the same form and in order of preference. Please note: Due to space restrictions, Gray and Richardson Elementary Schools will only be accepting Non-Catchment and Non-District Applications for those students who have siblings already attending the school. Families that fall in this category, please contact Gray or Richardson for more information on how to apply.
