Kindergarten is the initial point of entry into the public school system. Children must be five (5) years old on or before August 31, 2023 to register.
If a child’s fifth birth date falls on or after September 1, 2023, the child is not eligible to enroll. However, a parent may apply for early admission to kindergarten if the child’s fourth birthday is on/before April 16, 2023. The request must be made no later than the end of the first month of the school year and the child must meet all of the requirements for early admission.
Early admission to kindergarten is based on a child’s ability to meet state standards on student aptitude and achievement assessments administered by a licensed psychologist. In addition, evidence of the child’s physical and social maturity must be documented by two letters of recommendation. (Costs for aptitude and achievement testing are the responsibility of the parent and not the school system.)
