What options are available, if the daycare my kid goes to only escort kids to a school out of our catchment? Is there any option as the school under our zone has no daycare centres that escorted kids to and from and no before and after schools too any options please?
Thank you so much. I can't find any private homes also. My son will be in JK in Sep 2022.

Hi there,

Thank you for reaching out, and sharing your question with us.

We can understand that the enrollment process can be a bit frustrating when childcare is a factor.

You may find some helpful information in our Settlement.Org articles about enrolling children in school. Here is an excerpt:

“Attendance in public schools is determined by your home address. Each school has a boundary associated with it, known as a zone or catchment area, and students attend the school in their geographical area.

You can choose to send your child to a school outside of the boundary if you find one that is better suits their needs. You can do this by talking to your school board directly.”

You can also speak to the daycare and school(s) you are considering to see if there can be an arrangement. It may be possible to have a bus through the school or that the school knows of before and after school caregiving options that may be available with other families of your child’s classmates.

We hope that other users will be able to share their experiences with you in the meantime.

We hope this information is helpful. If you have any follow-up questions, please feel free to post them to the discussion forum here.
