Starting Kindergarten is an exciting time for both a parent and a child. For some children it is their first venture away from home. For all children it is a new learning community with new faces and procedures.
To enroll in Kindergarten, your child must turn 5 on or before September 1, 2023
Here are the simple steps to enroll:
Step 1: Find Your School
Use the School Locator to find your child’s attendance area school. Hillsborough County Public Schools also offers many Choice and Magnet school options. Find out more about our Choice and Magnet Programs at www.HillsboroughSchools.org/Magnet and www.HillsoroughSchools.org/Choice or contact the Choice Information Line at 813-272-4692.
Step 2: Contact Your School
Call your school and find a good time to register your child. The child’s legal parent or guardian must be there to register the child. You will also need specific documentation in order to register your child for Kindergarten.
Step 3: Fill out all Documentation
View the "Registration Checklist" for a list of documents that you will need to provide or will be asked to complete at the school site.
English | Spanish
Remember, your child’s Kindergarten registration is not complete until all the documentation is filled out and complete. This can sometimes be a lengthy process. That’s why it’s important to get started on the registration process as soon as possible.
