What you need to register your child for kindergarten


In order to register a child for kindergarten, parents must provide:

  • Proof of age (certified birth certificate) - must be 5 on or before August 31
  • Proof of residency¬† (power bill, water bill - a cell phone bill is not acceptable)
  • Parent/Guardian driver's license (or another acceptable photo id)
  • Record of Immunizations (most children receive immunizations at their five-year-old checkup)
  • NC Health Assessment Form (must be completed by both parent/guardian and medical provider)
  • Legal Documentation such as custody or guardianship

If your child needs to take medication at school, a complete medication form will be required.
