What do I need to register my child for Kindergarten?
To register your child for kindergarten you will need the following required documents:
- Original birth certificate or birth affidavit (with a raised seal)
- Immunization Records
- Drivers License or State ID
- Health Appraisal Form
What can I do to prepare my child for Kindergarten?
Encourage your child to be self-sufficient- zip his/her own clothes, put on and take off their own jacket, and tie their own shoes.
Practice getting ready for school with your child so they are familiar with the routine.
You can also read to your child daily and practice using scissors, writing their name, counting, or identifying colors and shapes.
Incoming Kindergartners must be five-years-old on or before September 1, 2021.
According to Michigan Law, a child may be enrolled in kindergarten if he/she is not five years of age on September 1, 2021, but will be five years of age not later than December 1, 2021, and the parent or legal guardian notifies the school district in writing (Kindergarten Waiver Form) that he or she intends to enroll the child in kindergarten.
If your child was born between the dates listed above, and you would like to enroll them at Escuela Avancemos Academy, please complete the kindergarten waiver form and submit it with your enrollment paperwork.
