Please Note: For the 2024-2025 school year, Kindergarten registration will be online through the ParentVUE portal starting March 18th.
All elementary schools with kindergarten classes offer a full-day kindergarten program.
(There are six elementary schools that do not serve grades K-2.)
Children age 5 by September 1 on the first day of school are eligible for enrollment.
Contact International Admissions and Enrollment at 240-740-4500 to begin the enrollment process when:
Parents registering their children for the first time in a Montgomery County public school must provide proof of county residency, identity, age and immunizations, unless homeless. Required immunizations must be completed within 20 days of registration.
Students who have previously attended school should bring their latest report card, if available. Students receiving special education services should bring a copy of the current Individualized Education Program (IEP).
For the 2024-2025 school year, registration sessions will be held in person beginning March 18, 2024. Schools will share further information about Kindergarten Registration with families.
Families moving into Montgomery County during the summer should register their children as soon as possible. School offices are open year-round. It is recommended that you contact the school and schedule an appointment as soon as possible.
MCPS has boundaries that determine your child’s home school. To determine which school serves your neighborhood, use the School Assignment Tool. You can also call the Boundary Information Line at 240-314-4700, between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m., Monday–Friday.
Families who have elected to register for kindergarten online should expect to receive a confirmation email from the school in about a week, depending on the volume of registrations being processed.
