Kindergarten/Young 5s Enrollment
Children who turn 5 years old by Sept. 1 are eligible to enroll in Kindergarten. Kindergarten is a full-day program (8:45 a.m.-3:58 p.m.) and is available at all of our elementary schools. Children who will turn 5 years old between September 2 and December 1 are eligible for Young 5s. Young 5s is also a full-day program, but is considered a district program and may not be housed in all schools. Young 5s students will receive placement letters in August once the schools that will house Young 5s are determined.
If parents have questions or concerns regarding their student’s developmental needs or placement within these guidelines, they should contact their school’s principal.
If you are a current Portage family with other students already enrolled in the district, please register your student using Skyward Family Access. Otherwise, to enroll your student for Kindergarten/Young 5s, please begin the online registration process.
