Five-Year-Old Kindergarten Enrollment


Hello and welcome to the Madison Metropolitan School District!

Your child can look forward to a wonderful year of exploration and growth while learning and building even stronger connections to teachers, friends and school. Get ready for a great school year.

To be eligible for Kindergarten for the 2024-25 school year, children must be 5 years old by September 1, 2024.

RETURNING STUDENTS: Parents of children who currently attend our 4K program enroll in August.

Parents or guardians need to show the following documentation when they enroll their child:

  • Verification of your child's age (birth certificate, passport, or health record)
  • Verification of your address (lease, mortgage or recent utility bill)
  • Your child's immunization record

Children are welcome to accompany parents, but they are not required to attend.

If parents have questions regarding early entrance to kindergarten (4 years old on September 1), they should contact the principal of their neighborhood school.
