Kindergarten Roundup

  • What to expect at Kindergarten/Young Fives Roundup

    Why Have Kindergarten/Young Fives Round-Up? Why Two Parts?

    We want you and your child to feel comfortable with attending Kindergarten at Paddock Elementary School. Meeting the Kindergarten staff and visiting the school will form positive attitudes prior to the start of school.

    Teacher, boy, and girl PART I –Parent Meeting of Kindergarten/Young Fives Round-Up will be on Wednesday, May 1, 2024 from 5:00 - 7:00pm. This informational meeting will give parents an opportunity to learn about a typical day of kindergarten, a brief introduction to the curriculum and submit/complete registration paperwork.  During this meeting, parents will also be given an appointment time to bring your child to Paddock in August. Please be sure to bring your child's original birth certificate, a copy of his/her immunizations and health appraisal, and your proof of residency.

    PART II of Kindergarten/Young Fives Round-Up will be August 6th, depending on your scheduled appointment time, for incoming kindergarten students and their parent(s).  

    On this day, your child will tour the school, participate in hearing /vision screening and complete a few assessments with a kindergarten teacher. 

    At Paddock we view each child as an individual and recognize that students enter kindergarten with various experiences and at different stages of development.  Meeting each student this summer, prior to the start of the school year, will help us better understand your child and form well-balanced kindergarten classes. 

    Planning Ahead


    • If possible, we suggest that siblings NOT attend PART II of the Round-Up activities with your kindergarten child. Plan to make it a special day for your new Kindergartener.
    • Remember, your child must be 5 years old on or before September 1, 2024 in order to be eligible to enroll in kindergarten.
