Who's Ready for Kindergarten? DCSD Registration Week is Nov. 27–Dec. 1

November 20, 2023

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, 2024, now is the time to register them for Kindergarten for the 2024-2025 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.

To help simplify the enrollment process, DCSD is offering a central Kindergarten registration week. If this week doesn't work for your schedule — no problem! Simply register as soon as you can (after November 27).

Online registration for Kindergarten is available for all 46 DCSD neighborhood schools. To enroll with a DCSD charter school, please get in touch with that school directly, as each charter school has its own enrollment process.
