Kindergarten Registration

In Wethersfield, kindergarteners experience an interactive full day program that focuses on building skills and concepts in reading, writing and mathematics. Children also have opportunities to explore science and the arts as well as work cooperatively with their peers.

Any child who is five years or older by January 1 is eligible for kindergarten. While the State of Connecticut does not require five-year-olds to attend kindergarten, it is strongly recommended as a means of giving young children a strong preparation for the rigor and expectations of the elementary school program. If parents choose not to send their child to kindergarten when the child is age-eligible, they must go to the school district office (127 Hartford Avenue) and sign an option form.

The Wethersfield Kindergarten registration process begins February 1 for the following school year. Specific registration information can be found on the Wethersfield District Website: Wethersfield Public Schools: Student Registration
