Kindergarten

The District maintains a half-day kindergarten with an instructional program that fulfills the District’s curriculum goals and objectives and the requirements of the State law. Students will be assigned to either a morning or afternoon session with information about the assignment available early August.

    • Morning Kindergarten Hours: 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
    • Afternoon Kindergarten Hours: 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Kindergarten Preview

Parents with kindergarten-age students (age 5 by September 1st) should register for the District’s Kindergarten Preview. If your child does not meet the age requirements, you may be interested in early enrollment options or in the District’s services at the Early Childhood Center for students ages 3 and 4.

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 February 14, 2020 (date is subject to change).
