Age Requirements for Kindergarten

In order to attend Kindergarten or Transitional Kindergarten your child must be five years old on or before December 2, of his/her Kindergarten year (per State of California law).

For the 2021-2022 academic school year:

  • Students born on or between September 2, 2015 - September 1, 2016 will be placed in Kindergarten.

  • Students born on or between September 2, 2016 - December 2, 2016 will be placed in Transitional Kindergarten. Transitional Kindergarten classrooms are currently located at Argonaut and Foothill Schools (subject to change due to staffing and/or enrollment changes).

Update: Under new state legislation, starting in 2022-23, the birth date cut-off for TK enrollment will be pushed back two months each year for four years. The net result is that as of Sept. 1, 2025, all 4-year-olds will be eligible to enroll in a transitional kindergarten program.

For the 2021-2022 school year, the TK eligibility age range remains unchanged. In subsequent school years, the TK age eligibility range will be adjusted as stipulated by California Education Code.
