Welcome, future Otsego bulldogs!
It's almost time to register for Kindergarten! We're excited to have you join the Otsego family! Get started by watching the video below to learn more about the process of enrolling your child in kindergarten, then fill out the online registration form.
Kindergarten Screening / Placement Information
We are looking forward to seeing all of our incoming kindergartners this spring! We will hold screenings at both our Learn 'n Grow Early Childhood Education Center and our three elementary schools.
All students coming to us from their home, daycare or another preschool will be screened by our kindergarten teachers at one of our elementary buildings. Once you've registered your child for Kindergarten using the online form (available February 1st), you will be directed to sign up for a screening time on either:
- April 21st between 8:00 a.m.-9:00 a.m. (taking place at all three elementary buildings)
- April 28th between 4:15 p.m.-5:15 p.m. (taking place at all three elementary buildings)
Each time slot will be 15 minutes.
Please note: Your child's placement is not linked to the building you attend for screening.
Learn 'n Grow Preschool students:
We will conduct a screening with all Learn 'n Grow Preschool students during their school day combined with consultation and recommendations from their teacher. Once you've registered your child on the online form, you will NOT need to sign up for a screening time.
