Kindergarten Early Entry (KEE)

  • Register for Kindergarten Early

    Children must be five years old by August 31 to be eligible to enroll in kindergarten, however, Kent School District (KSD) offers a fee-based assessment to determine if a younger child can enter kindergarten early. 

    1. The child must turn five years old between September 1 and October 31.
    2. The family must provide proof of address within the Kent School District boundary.

    During the in-person assessment children will:

    • Participate in a group observation with kindergarten teachers.
    • Receive one-on-one pre-academic testing with a school psychologist. 

    Assessment includes measures of school readiness in the areas of:

    • Mental ability
    • Gross motor skills
    • Fine motor skills
    • Visual discrimination
    • Auditory discrimination
    • Social-emotional development

    Applications Closed for the 2021-2022 School Year

    Kent School District is no longer accepting Kindergarten Early Entry applications or offering assessments for the 2021-2022 school year.

    If your child turns five years old on or before August 31, please register for kindergarten.
