Register at Willingdon Elementary School

All new registrations for Elementary Students take place at our school in early February. The applications for the certificate of eligibility will be done at the same time.

Willingdon registers new students throughout the school year, however, acceptance depends on classroom availability and whether the student lives within the school's boundaries. 

Parents must be eligible to receive a Certificate of Eligibility for their child. Learn more about Eligibility, visit EMSB website.
