It’s time to make sure your kindergarten registration information is updated and available on your school website and social media platforms. Be sure to include information such as:

  • The cut-off age for students entering kindergarten.
  • How, when and where to register children for kindergarten.
  • Links to download forms needed for registration.
  • Medical forms and a list of vaccinations needed by the first day of school.
  • The date and time of your spring registration event (transition day, roundup, etc.).
  • An explanation of what parents can expect at this event. Tell them if they should bring their children and if childcare will be provided for younger siblings.

 

Reach out to preschools for transition success

Supporting families as they start thinking about the transition from preschool to kindergarten will help them feel more motivated and confident. To reach families of rising kindergartners, form relationships with local preschools. By working together, you can make sure students get off to a great start!

  • Share your kindergarten curriculum with local preschools. Allow preschool teachers to observe or work in the kindergarten classroom. Encourage kindergarten teachers to observe preschool classes, too.
  • Help preschool and kindergarten staff get connected. Schedule visits to help administrators and teachers get to know one another. Coordinate registration and other events with the preschool.
  • Invite preschool classes to visit the school. Children might take tours, eat in the cafeteria and visit with kindergartners. Share photos of the event with parents.
  • Give parents information about how to ensure their children’s success. Include details they want most, such as kindergarten routines, dress codes and tips for handling first-day jitters.
