Yukon Education welcomes kindergarten registrations for the 2023-24 school year. Children who are 5 years of age on or before December 31, 2023, are eligible to attend Kindergarten in the 2023-24 school year. While Kindergarten attendance is not a legal requirement in the Yukon, most families choose to have their children access this important early learning program. Registration for Whitehorse children starts on Wednesday, February 1, 2023. Join the Department of Education on January 25 at 7 p.m. for a Kindergarten information night via zoom.

All Yukon students are welcome to enroll at FNSB Schools. Please follow the online registration instructions listed above.
The Education Area for our schools encompasses the entire Yukon and is not based on residential catchment areas. In Whitehorse, any student, no matter where they live in the city, can apply to enroll in one of our 2 urban schools: Takhini Elementary or Grey Mountain Primary. We ensure school busing is available for all students attending these schools.
The FNSB will strive to accommodate all students interested in enrollment at our Whitehorse-based schools, and will create additional classrooms if needed.
If demand for enrollment exceeds classroom availability, enrollment will be prioritized on the following scale:
Yukon First Nations students have a right to attend a FNSB school, regardless of where they live in the city and will be given first priority.
Siblings of students already enrolled in one of our Whitehorse-based schools will be given second priority.
Students residing in the adjacent residential areas (following the school’s former “attendance area” catchment) and/or other Indigenous students will be given third priority.
A lottery system will be employed for all other students.
In the Communities
All rural Yukon students have a right to enroll in the local FNSB school and can be registered in their community school following the instructions detailed below under “Register your child in a community.”
