We are excited to announce full-time programming for children in kindergarten starting in September 2019. Medicine Hat Public School Division believes in the importance of building a solid foundation in the early years. To enhance our strong early childhood program, we will offer a full-time option for kindergarten aged children. This will allow all children the option to receive additional programming to support the development of early literacy, early numeracy, motor skills and social emotional growth in child centered learning environments.  

Families should notify the school of their intent to register for the optional full-time program for kindergarten children. Registration will be confirmed upon receipt of the full -time kindergarten payment form. Registration dates are as follows:
  • JUNE 4 – JUNE 26, 2019: Families can visit their in-area school or school of choice to register for full-time programming. First come first serve, children that are registered before JUNE 26, 2019 will have a guaranteed spot in a full-time program in MHPSD. 
  • JUNE 27 – AUGUST 26, 2019: Families are asked to visit the MHPSD central office to register for full-time programming at 601, 1st Ave SW, Medicine Hat AB, T1A 4Y7. Office Hours: 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Monday – Friday. While registration will continue over the summer, we are unable to guarantee full-time programming options after June 27, 2019. If a full-time space is available in September, families will be accommodated. **Please note, summertime registrations will be confirmed by the end of August.

To guarantee a spot we recommend that families register at their in-area school or school of choice before June 26, 2019.

    It is our intention to provide a full-time option at all schools on a first come first serve basis, however we are unable to guarantee full-time programming options to families that register after June 26, 2019. Kindergarten registration will continue after June 26, and if a full-time space is available in September, families will be accommodated.  
  • There is rare chance that a full-time kindergarten option may not be available at a child’s in-area school. In this unique situation, we will offer an alternative option.   
  • School of Choice: Families are welcome to apply to attend any public school in our division where space is available.  
    • George Davison School and Dr. Roy Wilson Learning Centre are at maximum capacity and will not be accepting any out of area children at this time; please contact the school for more information. 
  • We prefer if kindergarten children attend their in-area school. Out of area kindergarten children may need to be redirected to their in-area school for grade one if their current school is unable to accommodate them.
For more information about full-time programming for children in kindergarten please contact your school.
