Kindergarten Registration & Information

“Children are like tiny flowers; they are varied and need care, but each is beautiful alone and glorious when seen in the community of peers .”
 --Friedrich Froebel

The North Reading Public Schools offers a cost-free half-day program as well as a  full-day, fee based kindergarten program in each of our elementary schools. A child, who is five years old on or before August 31st  of the school year, is eligible for Kindergarten in September of that year. The North Reading Public Schools early childhood programs encompass a broad range of developmentally-appropriate learning activities. Parents are encouraged to enroll their children in kindergarten when they are age appropriate. A kindergarten parent orientation is held annually and the date is indicated on the school district's calendar.

For the 2020-21 school year, the kindergarten orientation will be conducted on January 9, 2020 (snow date January 16, 2020) and will be held at the E.Ethel Little School, 7 Barberry Road, at 6:30p.m..  Registration takes place in late January at each elementary school.
