the natural place to learn©


Cove Cliff.DoubleExposurePhoto-9048.jpgEach year, we look forward to welcoming young learners and their families to the North Vancouver School District.

As you help your child prepare to begin a new journey with us -- an adventure that includes learning, sharing and growing among a caring community of students, staff, families and community partners -- know that we are here to support you too…because Kindergarten is a big step for everyone!

We encourage you to use the resources below to help you and your child successfully transition to Kindergarten.

We look forward to meeting you all very soon.

Ministry of Education and Child Care Resources

Some of the resources you will find in the Supporting the Transition to Kindergarten section include:

  • When I Go To Kindergarten (PDF). Help prepare your child for Kindergarten by working through this booklet. Record things your child is good at and that are important to them. Use the booklet as a keepsake or share it with your child’s teachers.
  • Play Today: A Guide For Families (PDF). Extended engagement in play is one of the best ways to prepare your child for school. Learn more about the different kinds of play that are important.
