Pre-primary FAQ: Busing
If your child is eligible for pre-primary this year, they may also be eligible for busing.
When you call to register your child for the program, the operator can advise you of your eligibility to receive busing.
If your child is registered to attend pre-primary in September and they are eligible to receive busing, your Regional Centre for Education or the Conseil scolaire acadien provincial will send you all necessary information.
Your child will be on the same bus as your family, friends and neighbours from your community.
The other children on the bus will be public school students.
This is not uncommon, as four-year-olds have been bused to programs and schools across the province regularly and safely for more than a decade.
School buses are among the safest vehicles on the road due to their unique design features. The Motor Vehicle Act requires all children under 40 pounds to use a seatbelt on a school bus, if they are available.
