Kindergarten Enrollment

  • OverviewKindergarten Registration

    The Early Childhood Center (ECC) is home to all of our district kindergarten classes. In order to enroll in kindergarten, a child must turn 5 years of age prior to the first day of September of the upcoming school year.
     
    NOTE: The compulsory school age in Pennsylvania was recently changed. These changes went into effect beginning in the 2020-2021 school year and will require all students to attend school no later than age 6 and until age 18 or graduation, whichever occurs sooner. These requirements will apply across Pennsylvania.      
     
    Enrolling in kindergarten is a two-step process. The first step - “pre-enrollment” – entails parents/guardians' completion of an online form. This form provides the district with important contact and demographic information needed to create the initial student record. Registration is not complete, however, until ALL required documentation has been received by the district. (This is most often completed at in-person kindergarten registration sessions.) Once registration is complete and accepted, parents/guardians will receive official confirmation from the district.
     

    Pre-Enrollment

    Pre-registration for Derry Township children who will be 5 years of age before September 1, 2022, and plan to attend kindergarten this coming fall. More information about beginning the enrollment process is coming in early 2022. Please check back here.
