A School for Everyone in Caledon East

Choosing a school for your child is an important task, so you should start thinking about it now.

Luckily, there are a lot to choose from here in Caledon East, both public and private and they’re close to Pathways. And with the Peel District School Board and Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board right in town, you’ll be sure to have all the information you need to make an informed decision.

First, find out which schools your child is eligible to go to. If your child was born in 2007, you can register them this month for kindergarten on February 23, 24 and 25.
