About Kindergarten and Early Kindergarten Enrollment
Children who will be 5 years old on or before Sept. 15, 2018 are eligible for enrollment in kindergarten. We assign kindergarten students to the school in the boundary area that corresponds to their home address. Students who enroll after classes are full in their grade level at their boundary school may be assigned to a different school.
Early Kindergarten enrollment
Early Kindergarten is full for the 2018-19 school year.
Enrolling in Early Kindergarten is an option for children who will be 5 years old by September 15 but may not be ready for a full-day kindergarten program. We offer morning and afternoon half-day classes at Northwood Preschool Center, Monday through Friday, based on a regular kindergarten curriculum.
