Who's Ready for Kindergarten? DCSD Registration Week is Nov. 28–Dec. 2

November 21, 2022

The holiday season has arrived, and school registration may be far from your mind. However, if your child will be 5 years old by October 1, 2023, now is the time to register them for Kindergarten for the 2023-2024 school year. Don’t wait — many Kindergarten classes fill quickly! 

Douglas County School District Kindergarten offers:

  • Structured, Rigorous, Play-Based Curriculum
  • Smaller Class Sizes
  • Authentic Learning Experiences
  • No Tuition — Full-Day Kindergarten is Free!

Douglas County School District implements a special transition process for our Kindergarten students called Balanced Beginnings. The first days of school will be staggered, with small groups of students coming in rather than the entire class.

This eases the transition into Kindergarten and allows teachers and students to build positive relationships, introduce the new environment and routines, and collect informal data as they begin their year with students.
