Kindergarten Enrollment

  • Welcome to WDMCS kindergarten! Kindergarten is a big step in life’s journey. It is a time of discovery and change for your child and for your family. Thank you for choosing to take your kindergarten journey with the WDMCS. We are excited to have you! 

    Elementary schools will host kindergarten roundup events for incoming families in August. Watch for more details from your student's school over the summer. 

Enroll Your Kindergartner for 2024-25

  • If your child will be 5 years old on or before Sept. 15, 2024, they are eligible to start kindergarten in the fall of 2024. Enrollment is now open.

    Online enrollment is also your chance to sign up for the Dual Language Spanish Immersion program at Western Hills Elementary. 

    Learn about the Dual Language Spanish Immersion program.

    Kindergarten enrollment is only for incoming kindergarten students. Current WDMCS families will update and verify current student information through online enrollment later in the spring.

  • My incoming 2024-25 kindergartner is a CURRENT TIGER CUBS PRESCHOOLER.


    You do not need to do anything else for enrollment until spring/summer 2024. At that time, you’ll be able to confirm online enrollment information for incoming kindergartners.

    Current Tiger Cubs preschool families interested in the Dual Language Spanish Immersion Program for kindergarten must complete our online enrollment process.


  • My incoming 2024-25 kindergartner does not live within district boundaries.


    If you live outside of the WDMCS boundaries, you must open enroll, even if you are a current Tiger Cub or community partner preschooler. You must fill out and turn in the open enrollment application BEFORE completing the online enrollment process. 

    To open enroll a 2024-25 kindergartner with WDMCS: 

    1. Fill out a 2024-25 open enrollment application. These will be processed in the order they are received. 
    2. Families will receive communication regarding open enrollment approval, as well as instructions for completing the online enrollment process.
