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.

Brief school tours will be offered to prospective families throughout the winter and spring on the following dates and times:
  • Tuesday, June 11, 4:00

For families who have registered their child, we will also host a Discover Kindergarten Open House on Wednesday, May 22, 5:00 - 6:00 p.m.  This session will answer many of your important questions about Rideau and the kindergarten program, invite children into some of our classrooms for activities, and offer a quick ride on a school bus!  More information about this session will be provided on registration.  If you missed our Discover Kindergarten Open House, don't worry! You can still pick up a welcome bag when you complete your registration, and you can check out the information that was shared in the powerpoint below:
