In Michigan, children must be five years of age on or before September 1st to register for kindergarten. Parents of children who turn five years of age on or before December 1, may still register their child for kindergarten next year if they notify the district in writing using the kindergarten entry waiver form.
GPPSS will continue to offer kindergarten options to include a Young Fives program – locations will depend upon enrollment. Young Fives offers an alternative for children whose parents feel they are not yet ready for a traditional kindergarten experience. Students who complete the Young Fives program are expected to go to kindergarten in their neighborhood school the following year. Eligibility is determined by birthdate--your child must turn five between March 1 and December 1. Families that live within the district may apply to one of the identified schools offering Young Fives. Click here for additional information about Young Fives enrollment process.
