Children born in 2015 are able to start school this September and school boards are helping parents and caregivers streamline the process with Kindergarten Registration week.

Sheena Valley from the Keewatin Patricia District School Board clairfies that you can register anytime through the year.

"We accept registrations all year. We will never turn a family away. You can come to our schools any time to register. Registration week is just a way to put all of these events into one timeline for families. It's meant to make it easier for families," she said.

Kindergarten Registration week begins on Monday and schools will be hosting a series of events through the week to help families decide where to place their children.

Marnie Buffett , Early Years Coordinator with the Kenora Catholic District School Board, says families aren't limited to visiting during the open houses.

"We know that families have very busy schedules. If for any reason you can't make that open house, certainly just call the school and we will find a time for you to tour the school and meet the educators that work there," she said.

Families can register their child anytime throughout the year as long as the child will be 4 years old by December 31.
