School-based Kindergarten helps children experience major cognitive, language, physical, social and emotional development. Full-day kindergarten offers several opportunities to build upon prekindergarten or early learning experiences.
Kindergarten classes are provided through Minnesota public school districts. More information about Kindergarten programs can be found online at: https://education.mn.gov/MDE/fam/k/index.htm
Children must be five-years-old by September 1 in the calendar year that school starts.
Each child must provide documentation of required immunization and have participated in a school district's early childhood screening program. A child may also meet this requirement by participating in a comparable health and developmental screening program provided by Head Start, Child and Teen Checkups or through a health care provider. If a parent is a conscientious objector to the screening program for their child, the child does not need to participate in the state screening program.
Children who are not yet five-years-old on or before September 1 may be considered for early entrance. Each school board establishes its own early admission policy for early entrance.
