Kindergarten registration underway

2017-18 preschool registration begins January 18

CASTLE ROCK –This time of year is always an exciting moment in our elementary schools as the parents of soon-to-be preschoolers and kindergartners begin the process of enrolling their little ones.

Kindergarten registration is now being accepted for students who will be five years old by October 1, 2017. Preschool registration begins on January 18 for students who will be three years old by that same date.

Preschool Registration
The Douglas County School District offers high quality and inclusive preschools in 71 classrooms, many of which are located at our neighborhood school locations.

Kindergarten Registration
Parents of incoming kindergartners should contact their neighborhood school for specific kindergarten registration requirements. The school should have its registration packet posted on its website. More information about the process is available on our Elementary Education page.

Scholarships are available for full time kindergarten students who qualify for the free and reduced-cost lunch (applications are submitted in July, but qualifications should be similar to the 2016-17 school year).
