Enroll Now for Kindergarten
CMSD encourages parents whose children will attend kindergarten in the fall to enroll them as soon as possible.
The District offers free full-day kindergarten with early literacy and math instruction and computer technology, all supervised by highly qualified teachers. Students also can receive free hearing screenings, free vision exams and glasses and, at select schools, free dental services.
Children may be enrolled at any neighborhood school. Enrolling now would allow schools to plan for the number of students it expects and allow parents and children to prepare for the experience of kindergarten.
Children must be 5 years old by Sept. 3 to attend kindergarten this year. Children who will turn 4 years old on or before Sept. 30 may be eligible for a free pre-kindergarten program.
Parents must bring to registration the child’s birth certificate, a complete and up-to-date immunization record, proof of address and, if applicable, guardianship documents.
Parents whose children primarily speak languages other than English or who are 3 or older and have special needs should call one of these numbers for assessment and registration.
