Prekindergarten and Kindergarten Registrations

It’s time to enrol your children in Regina Public Schools’ Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten programs.

Application for Pre-Kindergarten and registration for Kindergarten are now available. 

OUR KINDERGARTEN PROGRAM

Children 5 years of age as of December 31, 2017 may register for Kindergarten in Regina Public Schools for the 2017-2018 school year.

Our Kindergarten program builds on early learning principles, paying particular attention to the environment and the roles of conversation and play in children's learning experiences.

The full-day program, which runs on alternating days has a qualified teacher who provides programming designed to facilitate inquiry through children's play for up to 25 children.

Environments are carefully designed to inspire children to wonder, ask questions, and be curious; promote the holistic nature of children's learning; and encourage independence, responsibility, and participation.

Regina Public Schools offers Kindergarten in both English and French. Each program follows a language-specific curriculum as set forth by the Saskatchewan Ministry of Education.

OUR PRE-KINDERGARTEN PROGRAM

Children between three years as of date of application and four years of age as of December 31, 2017 may apply for Pre-Kindergarten in Regina Public Schools for the 2017-2018 school year.

Our Pre-Kindergarten program is a developmentally appropriate early childhood education program for three- and four-year-old children.

Space is limited and children who would benefit most from enhanced programming and meet eligibility criteria, based upon Saskatchewan Ministry of Education guidelines, are prioritized for enrolment.

The half-day program, which runs Monday through Thursday, has a qualified teacher and teacher associate who provide play and exploration based programming for up to 16 children.

Programming is child-centred, self-directed, and focused on holistic child development: socialemotional, physical, intellectual and spiritual.

Family engagement is an important part of the Pre-Kindergarten program. Through active involvement in the Pre-Kindergarten program, parents enhance their parenting skills and share responsibility for the well-being and education of their children.

Regina Public Schools offers Pre-Kindergarten in English. Each program follows a specific curriculum as set forth by the Saskatchewan Ministry of Education.

Regina Public School Division Focus

Parent Portal Passwords

In response to Saskatchewan Ministry of Education curriculum outcomes, school divisions across the province have adjusted their report cards. The new curriculum is smaller and expressed in "outcome" rather than objective form.  Teachers base  curriculum on outcomes, using them to determine assessment and decide on the resources that the class will use.  Curruculum requirements require problem-solving, critical thinking, mathematical reasoning, scientific open-mindedness and willingness to question and promote discussion.  Mastery of outcomes requires assessment that goes beyond tests and includes a variety of evidence that goes beyond numbers. 

Elementary (Grades 1 - 8) Regina Public Schools students receive a Progress Report that gives an overall course Level of Acheivement.  In addition, Levels of Achievement are given for specific outcomes for literacy and mathematics in an Outcome Report. 

A parent portal is available to all parents in RPS for students in grades one to eight. 

To encourage regular communication between school and home regarding student achievement, PowerSchool Parent Portal is available for all students from Grades 1 - 12.  Parents should contact their child's school for information for accessing Parent Portal. 

Please visit the office to obtain your Parent Portal password.
