Kindergarten in the QRSD

Our young learners begin their academic journey in our full-day kindergarten classes. Students must be 5 years of age on or before August 31, 2015.

Kindergarten Registration is now open for  students who reside in the district towns of Barre, Hardwick, Hubbardston, New Braintree and Oakham.

Parents and guardians may download the Kindergarten Registration packet here.
