The entrance dates for Kindergarten have changed? What are the new dates?
To enter Kindergarten, a child’s fifth birthday must be on or before:
Why has the State made this change?
School isn't just about developing a child's intellectual capabilities; there are emotional, social, and physical factors to consider. Allowing an extra year for our young five year olds provides an opportunity for students to grow in these areas before facing the rigor of the academic world.
What options do I have for my child since they are not eligible for Kindergarten?
What will the schedule be for Kindergarten?
All Kindergartener’s will have a regular day of 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
I’m worried that the day will be too long. Won’t the children get tired?
An extended day allows for recess and snack as well as quiet time during the day. The day will be at a relaxed phase and will include developmental play activities.
Where can I receive more information about Kindergarten at my particular school? Are their orientation meetings?
Each elementary school will hold an orientation meeting for incoming Kindergarten parents in the spring. Please contact your school for dates and times.
For more information, please contact your elementary school secretary or visit the Burlingame School District website at www.bsd.k12.ca.us.
