Schools of Choice
With the provisions of the Schools of Choice initiative, students
may apply for admission to any public school, within limits, in the province
best suited to the student’s learning requirements. To learn more about
Manitoba Education Schools of Choice please click here.
To register for WSD nursery, children
must live within the boundaries of the Winnipeg School Division.
Division recognizes the diversity of our population by providing a rich and
varied offering of language programming. Students
have a choice of immersion “milieu” or immersion dual track schools. The milieu
schools are where the French immersion program is the only program taught in
the school and starts at nursery.
Dual track and bilingual school starts
at kindergarten and is one where the regular English program is also taught.
Languages include French, Ukrainian and Hebrew.
Ojibwe and Cree language is part of
the Aboriginal Education program that starts in nursery at Niji Mahkwa School.
