Save the date for the MPS Kindergarten Enrollment Fair on February 3, 2024

MPS StudentsWill your child turn 3, 4, or 5 by September 1, 2024? It’s time to think about kindergarten! Kindergarten Enrollment will begin Saturday, February 3, 2024, and will kick off with an enrollment fair at South Division High School.

The fair will help families explore schools, make choices, and apply to schools for Fall 2024. All families with children who will turn 3, 4, or 5 years old by September 1 should plan to attend.

MPS schools that offer kindergarten and Head Start will be present so families can ask questions, learn about programs, and identify the best options for their children. Families will have the chance to speak directly with school staff and get help filling out enrollment forms. Interpreters will be available. Please note—according to Wisconsin law, children must complete five-year-old kindergarten before entering first grade.

MPS provides free breakfast and lunch for all students. Many schools have before- and after-school care to accommodate parents. Bus transportation is available; each school can provide information.

Head Start

The Head Start program promotes children's development through services that support early learning, health, and family well-being. This preschool program is available for families who meet specific income limits. Transportation is available.
