Black Gold School Division



All applicable Black Gold schools are now open for 2024-2025 Kindergarten registration! 

Each designated school may offer different program times (i.e. morning, afternoon, Monday/Wednesday, or Tuesday/Thursday), and all children will have a place at their designated school. If you have a strong preference for a particular time, please register early to avoid disappointment as preferred/requested program times will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis using Black Gold’s online enrollment system starting on January 8, 2024.


When Is My Child Eligible To Attend Kindergarten?

Children may begin Kindergarten in a school within the Division in September if they are at least 4 years 8 months old as of August 31 of the respective school year.

About Our Program

The Black Gold School Division (BGSD) offers Kindergarten programs in all the communities in which we operate (Beaumont, Calmar, Devon, Leduc, New Sarepta, Thorsby, and Warburg).  

To find your local program/school please visit BGSD’s Bus Planner – School Eligibility Page.

For more  information, please contact the Early Years Consultant at

Several BGSD schools offer programming options with varying days, length (full-day, every other day and half-day), and times.  Early French Immersion is offered in BGSD’s Beaumont Family of Schools as well as two locations in our Leduc Family of Schools (École Corinthia Park School and École Leduc Estates School). Please inquire with individual schools for programming details.

Programs and class preferences are subject to change based on enrollment, space and program viability. We encourage families to register early to avoid disappointment.

Our Kindergarten programs build on what your child has already learned at home and in your community. Our programs allow children to explore and experiment with their surroundings and to learn how to interact with other children. Our Kindergarten programs offer many benefits including:

  • Further developed skills in language arts, math, social studies, science, and the arts.
  • Improved personal and social skills.
  • Enhanced physical skills.
