There are regulations for the age a child must be to enroll in public school Prekindergarten and Kindergarten:
· A child admitted to the prekindergarten program in public schools shall be 4 years old or older on September 1 of the school year in which the child applies for entrance.
· A child admitted to the kindergarten program in the public schools shall be 5 years old or older on September 1 of the school year in which the child applies for entrance.
Please Note: A child who is not 4 by September 1 that is enrolled in a 4-year-old class may need to attend another year of 4-year-old prekindergarten in order to meet the age requirement the following year. A parent may apply for early entrance to kindergarten at the local school system office, but that does not guarantee enrollment.
