    Kindergarten provides children with opportunities to work and play, learn to share, accept and respect individual differences, learn to express him/herself, develop physical coordination, begin to work with language, literary and numeracy and general readiness for first grade.

    During the 2021-2022 school year, Westminster Public Schools will continue to provide a full-day kindergarten program at each elementary school. Children must be five years old on or before October 1 to enroll.  There is no cost to parents for students attending this full-time kindergarten program. 

    To register for Kindergarten, we will need:
    ** Immunization record (will not be able to register without current immunizations / students in Kindergarten must have 5 DTP, 4 Polio, 3 Hepatitis B, 2 Varicella and 2 MMR (unable to register without current immunizations)

    All new kindergarten students will be assessed with a screening instrument that has been developed by District staff. The assessment takes about ½ hour per child to administer and provides information about academic readiness in the areas of development, literacy, and mathematics. It can be administered in English or Spanish, depending on the child’s native language.
