When do I start?

looking into enrolling my dd (just turned 5) into kindergarten? Is there a certain time frame to get her enrolled (public)?
Or what do I do to start the process for homeschooling proper? I mean we've been "homeschooling" but for kindergarten what do I need to do?
We're still in debate on which to do, since we may be stationed somewhere else in the next year
TIA~

Hi there fellow Yorker I think around here they start enrolling kids in Kindergarten around this time for the following year. There's usually like Kind. orientation. Check the website for whatever district your're in and its prob listed.

They call it Kindergarten Roundup here (we're in Kansas - go figure). Yeah, check the district website. They should be enrolling now for the fall.

Kindergarten round up is this month here.
You could just call the local elementary school and ask for the package. Here you fill out the paperwork and take it with you and your Little one to an appointment. They play with the kids one on one and try some sort of letter, number, color games and see what they know already.
Then during the summer you get a letter from your K teacher inviting you to a get together, so the kids can see the room and meet other kids and parents, they have tea and cookies, play in the K yard and have some fun before the school fills up with the big kids for the school year.
Kids who they think may fall behind get two weeks of summer school to prepare them for the school year.
Can you tell I used to help out at round up?

Re: When do I start?

I enrolled my dd back in Feb. I was at the school picking my other 2 up and was early so I figured I'd get it over with.lol I'll be getting a letter soon and my dd will spend 1/2day in K, it'll be in May. I'll get another one soon to to have her speech tested.

It's been in the paper & school newsletters for a month now about K registration.
