Children are eligible for kindergarten if they will be five years of age on or before September 30, 2016. The actual screening of incoming students took place during the week of April 11-14. A makeup screening for May 10 was also held. If you missed both opportunities, please visit our central office (located at 629 Arabella) to register your child for kindergarten. Please call 419-782-0070 to verify someone will be in the office over the summer months.
Defiance City Schools offers two kindergarten-aged programs, an early-five program (KinderStart) and regular Kindergarten. Both are all day, every day programs.
Important papers for parents to begin collecting include a valid birth certificate, immunization records, a social security number and any applicable custody papers. All of this information must be collected before the child can begin kindergarten in the fall.
We look forward to meeting your child!
