Kindergarten Registration
Kindergarten Registration
Posted on 01/18/2019

Kindergarten registration starts Feb. 5!

We’re enrolling all future students who will turn 5 years old by Aug. 31. All CK Schools provide full day kindergarten.

Even though school doesn’t start until September, signing up now gives you plenty of time to get information about starting the school year off right. 

How Do I Register?

Save time by visiting our Registration page, where you can register online and find out other paperwork you’ll need to provide.

You can also visit your neighborhood school during school hours to register. When you register, ask about your school’s kindergarten round-up event, where you and your child can visit and learn more about your new school!

What’s Kindergarten Like?

Do you want to know what your child will learn? What your child should know before he or she starts school? Or what it’s like to ride the bus?

Visit our Welcome to Kindergarten page for information and links to additional resources.

When Can We Visit My School?

Each elementary school hosts a kindergarten round-up event, where you and your child can visit and learn more about your new school. Our schools will also work with you to schedule an appointment to meet 1-on-1 with your child’s teacher in early September, before school starts.

How Else Can I Help My Child Get READY?

Please consider attending an upcoming READY! for Kindergarten class.

Visit our READY! for Kindergarten page to learn more about this free program to prepare your child for her or his school years.

We also recommend looking through our guide to kindergarten, “A Positive Beginning” (pdf). It includes tips on activities you can do at home to build school-ready skills.
