Registration for children 5 years of age on or before August 31, 2021

Important Information Regarding Kindergarten Registration for the 2021-22 School Year

Kindergarten registration will begin on February 1, 2021 for school year 2021-22.  Please note that if your child is age-eligible but will not start kindergarten in the 2021-22 school year, we ask that you submit a written request to defer your child’s attendance for one school year.  You do not have to complete a registration packet.   These written requests will allow us to plan more effectively for space and staffing needs for the incoming and future cohorts of Kindergarten students. Additionally, this information will help us create more transparency and consistency around the admissions process moving forward.

Written deferment requests should be sent to:

Cynthia Mahr, Assistant Superintendent for Finance and Operations
Via email (preferred)
Or postal mail: 40 Kingsbury Street, Wellesley, MA 02481
