Kindergarten is an exciting milestone for every family, and we want to make your child's transition to school a happy, smooth one.  You can find out about kindergarten in Limestone here .

Ecole Rideau Public School is pleased to offer French Immersion Full-Day Kindergarten to children from a wide catchment area.  French Immersion is the choice of many parents in Kingston, and Rideau is proud to produce graduates who are fluent in our country's two official languages.  More information about French Immersion is available on the Board website here.  To find out if we are your French Immersion school, enter your address in our School Locator Tool.  Please note that we do not offer an English Track program.

We will be offering brief tours of the school for families to help decide whether Rideau is right for your child.  These tours will be held on the following dates:

 - Thursday, March 26, 8:30 a.m. Cancelled due to school closure
 - Wednesday, April 8, 3:45 p.m.
 - Monday, June 8, 3:45 p.m.

No pre-registration is required; simply meet outside the main office if you are interested.

We will also host a Discover Kindergarten Open House on May 20, 5-6 p.m. for parents and children who have already registered.  This open house will give families information needed to be ready for the transition to school, and will give children the opportunity to see inside the classrooms and experience a taste of kindergarten at Rideau!

Registration for kindergarten is done online, and will begin in February. Please note that while schools are closed due to COVID-19 it will take longer than normal for us to reply to registrations.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Information on registration is available here.
