Kindergarten--how do you sign up?

Okay, dumb question for the newbie mom. How do you sign your child up for kindergarten. Do you have to call the school? Do you they just send you a letter saying your kid is eligible for kindergarten, fill this out and he's enrolled? Are there entrance exams or anything like that? I tried calling our school but no one is answering their phones. I hate voicemail, I want a REAL person.

Re: Kindergarten--how do you sign up?

Around here, there is sign up days in the spring for the following year. Or you can just wait until the fall right before school starts, but my kids always want to know who their teacher is before then, so we do the spring sign up. I would keep trying to contact the school to find out when kindergarten sign up is in your area. There aren't exactly entrance exams here, but they do test them to get an idea of where they are as far as reading and math since there is such a wide range of skill levels at that age. I was watching a show on kindergarten in New York (I think) and was shocked at how different it was there compared to here. The testing and competitions that went on were mind boggling to me!!
