Early Admission to Kindergarten

Students entering kindergarten in the fall of 2017 must be five years old on or before September 1, 2017. A child whose birth date falls between September 2 and December 31 may apply for early admission to kindergarten for fall 2017. 


The early admission process involves a screening of your child’s knowledge and understanding, physical motor skills, communication skills, and social/ emotional development in the classroom. This screening takes place during a two-week window in April and May. Enrolling a child in kindergarten early is an important decision that may have a long-term impact on their educational progress. All children who enroll early in kindergarten will be monitored throughout the fall to determine if their skills reflect the abilities needed to continue in kindergarten.


Students recommended for early admission to kindergarten will be enrolled after all kindergarten-eligible students are placed. Please register for the Early Admission to Kindergarten Screening by Wednesday, March 22, 2017. Students will be screened at the Student Placement Center. For more information, please call the Student Placement Center at 651-632-3760.
