The Québec Preschool Cycle Program is for 4-year-olds (K4) and 5-year-olds (K5) and is available in all of our schools.
The program follows the regular school calendar from late August to late June. Although not mandatory, this program is part of Québec’s public-school system and is free, however, you can expect to pay fees for things such as supplies, and school daycare services if needed.
What does your child need to be ready for K4 or K5?
Nothing! 🙂 The only requirements are that your child will turn 4 (K4) or 5 (K5) before September 30 of the year of enrolment, and that they are eligible to attend school in English.
