Ready, Set... Enroll Now for Kindergarten

Kindergarten--Get Ready! Do you know a child who will be five years old on or before August 31? The time to register for kindergarten this fall started January 17. The first 500 families to register will receive two free tickets to the Woodland Park Zoo. Learn about other opportunities if you register now!

Please visit your neighborhood school during regular school hours. After the zoo tickets run out, those who register early will receive a new book.
Most importantly, students who enroll early will have access to free kindergarten readiness programs and materials. This includes free PreK Play and Learn (starting February), school-based events, and Kindergarten Jump Start (August 21-25).

Students must be registered for kindergarten to attend these programs and events.

We also encourage families to work with their students at home. To help, we've created the Kindergarten Readiness Guidelines. This document does not need to be completed and turned in at the school, but rather is for parents to keep as a guide to kindergarten readiness.

What You Need to Know About Registration:
If your child will be five years old on or before August 31, 2017, he or she is eligible to register for the 2017-2018 school year. To enroll, please visit your neighborhood school. If you need help identifying your neighborhood school, use the WebQuery tool or please call 206.631.3003.
