Extended (Full) Day Kindergarten

Extended Day Kindergarten, also referred to Full Day Kindergarten is a tuition-based all day kindergarten program offered for families who wish to have their kindergartener attend all day rather than only in the morning or afternoon. Distribution of this information does not guarantee that every child will be accommodated.

Tiered Enrollment Process

Out-of-boundary or out-of-district families that would like to attend an extended day kindergarten program will be dependent on space availability. Students will be placed following a five-tiered priority with the first priority going to boundary students, second priority to in-district students with siblings at the requested school, third priority to out-of-district students with siblings at the school, fourth priority to in-district students who do not have siblings at the requested school and a fifth priority to out-of-district students who do not have siblings at the requested school. Information about the Admissions process and Choice applications can be found here on the Adams 12 website.

NOTE: If your child is placed in an extended day tuition based kindergarten program at a school that is not your boundary school, he/she will have to return to his/her boundary school for first grade, or you can apply to any school that is open for Choice Enrollment. However, keep in mind that your kindergartener's school may not be open to the Schools of Choice program for first grade.
