2009‐10 Kindergarten Registration
New Information Regarding your Kindergartner
Starting with the 2009‐10 school year, all children must turn 5 years old by
August 31 to enroll in kindergarten (with the exception of students who
qualify for early kindergarten entrance).
Guilford County Schools encourages all parents of age eligible 4‐ and 5‐year‐olds in
Guilford County to register their children.
Kindergarten registration begins March 2, 2009. To register, parents need to bring
the following to their child’s assigned school:
• A certified birth certificate
• A fully completed kindergarten health assessment report
• A record of your child’s immunizations
• Proof of residence
Gifted 4 ½‐year‐olds who are functioning two to three years beyond their age can be eligible to enroll in
kindergarten early. To see if your child qualifies, contact the principal of your child’s assigned school.
Parents of children who turn 4 years old on or before August 31, 2009 may want to explore district
and community pre‐K opportunities. Children are determined eligible through a screening process.
For additional information about pre‐K services for your child, contact the pre‐K office at 370‐2362.
