  1. Proof of residence address. Examples of documents accepted include a copy of a utility bill, driver’s license with current address, copy of rental agreement, etc.

  2. Original birth certificate for the child. The school will make a copy and return the original to the parent.

 

Help your student get ready

  • Learn the ABC’s and how to count to twenty

  • Name and identify basic shapes, such as square, triangle and circle
