Kindergarten Preview

Kindergarten Preview is a one-hour session for incoming kindergartners to participate in activities as a small group, observed by teachers and parents. The preview is an opportunity to observe a sample of a child’s fine-motor, cognitive, speech and language skills. Batavia Public School District 101 strongly encourages families of incoming kindergarten students to participate, which starts the enrollment process. More information about preparing your child for kindergarten is available in the Kindergarten Preview Booklet.

The next Kindergarten Preview will be held on Thurs., Feb. 28, 2019.


Schedule a Kindergarten Preview session at the school within your current school boundary. To qualify, your child must be turning 5 on or before Sept. 1, 2019. (Please Note: Families with children who speak primarily Spanish should consider selecting the 10 a.m. session at H.C. Storm elementary school.)
