Some of School District 71’s programs of choice for kindergarten have now filled up, Comox Valley Schools announced Feb. 15.

As well, many neighbourhood schools are getting close to capacity, so the district wants families to be sure to register children entering kindergarten in 2022 as soon as possible in order to be able to attend their local school.

To be eligible for enrolment into kindergarten, a child must be five years old by Dec. 31, 2022. For more information and an orientation video, see
