January 17 & 18: Rainbow Schools host Kindergarten Information Nights

Rainbow Schools in Sudbury, Espanola and Manitoulin will host Kindergarten Information Nights for students starting school this fall. All parents/guardians and their children are welcome.

Information Nights will take place from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm on Wednesday, January 17, 2024 for the English Program and Thursday, January 18, 2024 for French Immersion. Schools offering English and French Immersion will host one Information Night on Thursday, January 18, 2024.

If your child is starting school for the very first time, please complete the Elementary Registration Form here: bit.ly/rsregisternow. Completed forms can be emailed directly to schools or sent to info@rainbowschools.ca.

For enrolment in Kindergarten, your child must be four years of age by the end of the calendar year.

Registration is not complete until school staff receive your child’s identification documents, including birth certificate or birth registry/baptismal certificate, proof of residency, Ontario Health Card and an immunization record.

Parents/guardians can enroll their children in the English Program or the French Immersion Program.

The English Program includes a Core French component beginning in Grade 4. Students are introduced to the French language through songs, games, drama and interactive activities for a specified period of time daily.

French Immersion immerses children in the French language, including cultural experiences, when they start school. English language instruction is introduced in Grade 3 and gradually builds to a balance of French and English instruction by Grade 5. This ensures that students gain effective bilingual skills. This program is designed for English speaking parents/guardians so they may support their children to become bilingual.
