Two sessions are available. Each one is two weeks long (Mon-Thurs only).

Register Now for 2022-23 Kindergarten

Kindergarten registration is open for children who will be 5 years old by September 1, 2022. If your child isn’t registered yet, we encourage families to register before school offices close for the summer. They won’t reopen until late August.

Registering before summer break gives incoming kindergarteners and their families the chance to get to know their teacher, become familiar with their school and learn the next steps in beginning kindergarten. Early registration is also extremely helpful because it gives teachers and school staff time over the summer to prepare the classroom for your child.
