New Preschool and Kindergarten Age Requirements
The Connecticut General Statutes have changed and there is a new requirement for the starting age for kindergarten.
1. Children MUST turn 5 on or before September 1st to enroll in kindergarten
2. Some families may believe that even though their child is underage, their child is ready for kindergarten this September 2024. If a guardian would like to submit a waiver they may do so to have their child assessed for consideration of
underage enrollment. Waivers must be requested by March 15, 2024. Waivers will be considered but will be given only when there is evidence that it is warranted.

3. Preschool students must turn 3 on or before September 1st in order to be enrolled in preschool beginning in the school year 2024-25.
