January 11 & 12: In-person Kindergarten Information Nights in Rainbow Schools
Rainbow Schools in Sudbury, Espanola and Manitoulin will host in-person Kindergarten Information Nights for students starting school this fall. All parents/guardians and their children are welcome.
Information Nights will take place from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm on Wednesday, January 11, 2023 for the English Program and Thursday, January 12, 2023 for French Immersion. Schools offering English and French Immersion will host one Information Night on Thursday, January 12, 2023.
If your child is starting school for the very first time, please complete the Elementary Registration Form here: https://www.rainbowschools.ca/register-now/registration/. Completed forms can be emailed directly to schools or sent to [email protected].
For enrolment in Kindergarten, your child must be four years of age by the end of the calendar year.
Registration is not complete until school staff receive your child’s identification documents, including birth certificate or birth registry/baptismal certificate, proof of residency, Ontario Health Card and an immunization record.
Parents/guardians can enroll their children in the English Program or the French Immersion Program.
The English Program is exclusively in English and includes a Core French component, which begins in Grade 4. Students learn French through songs, games, drama and interactive activities for a specified period of time daily.
French Immersion immerses children in the French language, including cultural experiences, when they begin school. English language instruction is introduced in Grade 3 and gradually builds to a balance of French and English instruction by Grade 5. This ensures that students gain effective bilingual skills. This program is designed for English speaking parents/guardians so they may support their children to become bilingual.
