Enroll in 2019-20 Kindergarten or Young Kindergarten

Welcome! Registration is underway for children who will be 5 years old by Sept. 1, 2019. Children with a September, October or November birth date who will be 5 by Dec. 1, 2019, are eligible for kindergarten if the parent signs a waiver no later than June 1, 2019 (see waiver below).

 

Full day kindergarten is offered every day in every elementary school. All day, every day young kindergarten is available but may not be at every school. Note: If your child is currently enrolled in 2018-19 young kindergarten, you do not need to re-enroll. If you need help registering or have questions, email registration@gpsbulldogs.org or call (616) 254-6584.
