  • Welcome to Kindergarten!

    Kindergarten is an exciting time for your child. In order for your child to be enrolled in Kindergarten in the Wichita Public Schools, they will need to be 5 years old by Aug. 31. We offer a full-day program at all of our elementary schools.

    Online enrollment

    Online enrollment typically begins in early July followed by in-person enrollment in August at our elementary schools. Sign up for our Kindergarten Ready! newsletter to receive email reminders. 


    To find your neighborhood elementary school, use our SchoolFinder page or contact Student Records and Enrollment Services at 316-978-4498.


    Go to our Enrollment page for more information about the enrollment process.
