Do you have, or know, a child starting Kindergarten in the fall of 2016? If so, registration for the 2016–2017 school year is now open. Please download the Registration Form or come to the school to pick up your Kindergarten Package.
To build skills for an increasingly global world, Mills Haven also offers a German Bilingual Program as well as a regular English Program.
To help families prepare, EIPS has compiled a wealth of information on its website (www.eips.ca/kindergarten). There you’ll find details regarding how to register, eligibility, dates to remember, how to find your designated school, programming options, what to expect, transportation, and more. Additional information regarding Mills Haven’s Kindergarten program, can be found on our Kindergarten page.
When registering your child, don’t forget to bring with you proof of residence, your child’s name, and date of birth and citizenship.
To assist in our planning for next year, we encourage families to register their new Kindergarteners, and make busing arrangements if needed, by April 30, 2016.
NOTE: To be eligible for the 2016–2017 Kindergarten program, children must be five years old on, or before, Dec. 31, 2016.
Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) has put together the 2016–2017 Kindergarten Guide, an online toolkit to make the transition as smooth as possible. Below you will find everything you need to know about Kindergarten including registration, eligibility, important dates, Kindergarten Information Nights, designated schools, programming options, fees, Student Transportation, boundary exemptions, how to prepare, ways to be involved, and more.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are registering a child in a non-designated school for Kindergarten you must follow the boundary exemption request process, which takes place from February 1 to April 14.
Mills Haven Parent Survey
2015–2016 Parent Survey
Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) is committed to ensuring all parents and guardians of students within the Division have a chance to share their thoughts on the overall performance of their school and the Division. One of the ways EIPS ensure its parent’s voices are heard is by conducting regular surveys.
In November, the Division invited parents and guardians to participate in an online parent survey. They were asked 15 questions about the quality of teaching, school leadership, parent engagement, and more. The online survey received an impressive 19 per cent response rate, with more than 3,170 responses from parents and guardians across the Division. Throughout the coming months, we will use the results of the parent survey to help inform its school and Division planning.
The complete results report, including summaries of participation and responses by question, is now available.
