Will your child turn 3, 4, or 5 by September 1, 2023? It’s time to think about kindergarten! Kindergarten Enrollment will begin Saturday, February 4, 2023, and will kick off with an enrollment fair at North Division High School, 1011 W. Center St., Milwaukee, WI 53206.
The fair will help families explore schools, make choices, and enroll students for Fall 2023. All families with children who will turn 3, 4, or 5 years old by September 1 should plan to attend.
Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS) 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.
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 income limits. Transportation is available.
