Learn about childcare and how to register your child/children in school.


1. Child Care

Families and communities are supported through Saskatchewan's Early Learning and Child Care Program. This program supports high-quality care for children in healthy, safe and nurturing environments.

Learn about early learning and child care programs in Saskatchewan, and find a licensed child care provider near you.


2. Register Your Child/Children in School

In Saskatchewan, students are usually placed in grades with peers that are close in age.

Prekindergarten is usually a half-day program for three-and four-year-old children. It is available in a limited number of schools and families need to apply for their children to attend. You will need to contact the school to find out if Prekindergarten is available.

In grades 10 to 12, students take courses at different grade levels, depending on their prior education and knowledge in specific subject areas and language proficiency.

The educational goals of newcomer students and their families are supported by the Government of Saskatchewan, educators, education partners and stakeholders.

The Government of Saskatchewan has made amendments to The Education Regulations, 2019 to ensure that all Ukrainian school aged students arriving through the Canada-Ukraine Authorization for Emergency Travel (CUAET) Program receive tuition-free Kindergarten to Grade 12 education. Learn more about education in Saskatchewan by viewing Education in Saskatchewan: A Guide for Arriving Ukrainians, which includes an interactive map for families to locate school divisions/schools near their settled locations.
