Welcome to Kindergarten
The Springfield City School District welcomes you and your child to a wonderful school experience! Your child's education begins with their kindergarten year - a year that is filled with new and exciting experiences for children and their families.
Kindergarten is a time for children to expand their love of learning, their general knowledge, their ability to get along with others, and their interest in reaching out to the world. While kindergarten marks an important transition from preschool to primary grades, it is important that children still be children. This year will be one of the most important milestones in your child’s life – the first year of school! A successful adjustment to kindergarten will often influence the child’s perception, attitudes, and performance in subsequent school years.
Each child who is five years of age on or before September 30 is eligible to enroll in kindergarten.
In limited and specific circumstances a kindergarten student may be eligible for an early entrance or a delayed entrance into kindergarten. Parents/guardians are encouraged to contact central registration if this situaiton applies. Please see Board Policy JEBA for more information.
Enrollment takes place online or at the District Central Registration Office. If Parents/Guardians are unable to upload all required documentation, they must personally appear to finish enrolling a child with the required documentation. Required documents include proof of age, proof of residency, and proof of immunizations.
