1. Proof of Age (Birth Certificate, Hospital Certificate, Baptismal Certificate, Immunization Record printed directly from physician’s office with student’s legal name and date of birth, Immunization Record printed from ALERT Immunization Information System)

Kindergarten should be a good experience for students and a positive introduction to school. Students do best when they are prepared socially and academically to start school. Help your child succeed in school with these kindergarten readiness tips and resources.
- Read to your child. This is one of the most important activities for academic success, improving attention spans and learning early reading skills.
- Provide opportunities to be away from you. Activities such as organized sports, day camps and play groups will help them develop social independence and a sense of safety and confidence during the separation from you at school.
- Be sure your child gets enough sleep. Young children need at least 10 hours of uninterrupted sleep for the brain to shift learning into memory. Even a small amount of sleep can affect school performance, which is often exhibited as hyperactivity.
