Kindergarten Information

Beginning with the 2024-25 school year, children will need to be five years old on or before September 1 of the school year to be automatically eligible for kindergarten in Connecticut Public Schools. There is a provision in the law that allows parents to seek an exemption from the September 1 cut off.

Early Kindergarten Assessment

If your child turns 5 years old on or after September 2, 2024, you may apply for early kindergarten admission for your child. The early admission process will include a play-based assessment by certified Stamford Public Schools preschool or kindergarten teachers.
