Preschool Registration

Pre-registration for existing Care to Learn Preschool families began April 9th. Parents were emailed information on how to register using our new online registration form and the PowerSchool Parent Portal.

Registration for the 2018-2019 school year is now open to the public. Please register using School Engage by clicking HERE. You will need to provide citizenship documentation as part of the process (birth certificate, passport, citizenship documents), so please have that available to upload. 
Once you have submitted your form, it may take up to five working days (Monday-Friday, excluding statutory holidays) for us to review your form and availability in the class you have selected. You may receive a call from our division coordinator during that time to confirm details.

Once your enrollment has been confirmed, you will need to complete your enrollment by paying your deposit. This is the process you will need to follow:

  • You will receive an email with your Access ID and Access Password for the PowerSchool Parent Portal. Instructions on how to create an account and link your student to that account have been posted HERE. You will need to do this to access your student's ASN (Alberta Student Number), which you will need to set up an account in School Cash Online, or to attach your student to your existing School Cash Online account.
  • If you do not already have a School Cash Online account, please follow the instructions HERE to set one up and attach your student to your account using their ASN.
  • You will receive an email notification from School Cash online when your preschool deposit is available to be paid. This may take up to 24 hours.

If you need assistance in setting up or using School Cash Online, please contact your school. Your space in the preschool program will be held for two weeks from the date your enrollment is confirmed. If you have not made payment by that time, your space may be assigned to someone else. If you are experiencing difficulty paying the fee on time or need assistance with applying for the Provincial Government's Child Care Subsidy, please contact our Division Coordinator, Glenda Bouvier, at 780-623-4414. 

If you wish to register for preschool for the remainder of the 2017-2018 school year, please email

Kindergarten Registration

If you are a current Care to Learn Preschool student at one of our schools, you should have received an email with information about how to confirm your registration in our Kindergarten programs using the PowerSchool Parent Portal. You do not have to fill out a new Kindergarten registration form.

If you are not currently enrolled in our preschool program, you can register in person at the school or you can register online with our K-12 Registration Form form through School Engage. You will need to provide citizenship documentation as part of the process (birth certificate, passport, citizenship papers), so please have a photo or scan of your documents ready to upload to your online registration.

K-12 Registration Form


Grades 1-12

Online registration is intended for the registration of NEW students only. If your child was registered in school in June of the previous school year, they are automatically enrolled in the promoted grade in the new school year. Do not re-enroll them online. They are already registered!

High School Students that are new to Northern Lights Public Schools may register online but must also make arrangements to meet with their school's guidance counselor or principal to do their course selection and to complete the registration process.

You will need to provide citizenship documentation as part of the process (birth certificate, passport, citizenship papers), so please have a photo or scan of your documents ready to upload to your online registration.
