Kindergarten Enrollment

All Jeffco neighborhood elementary schools offer full or half-day kindergarten programs. Some schools offering half day kindergarten, also offer before and after school child care.

These kindergarten programs provide developmentally appropriate education for 5 and 6 year olds. Review the Curriculum Guides to see what Jeffco kindergartners learn.

Please call the school where you would like to enroll your student for enrollment information. Many schools have parent information nights to explore the school environment and meet administrators, teachers, etc.

A lottery will be used to determine student placement in the different kindergarten programs that schools offer.


See the online neighborhood/assigned school locator or school directory, to determine your neighborhood school.
