Kindergarten  Registration Information

The entry age for Kindergarten requires children to be 5 years old by:
September 1st of the enrollment school year.


According to Michigan Law, if a child residing in Bedford Public Schools is not five years of age on September 1, 2015 but will be five years of age not later than December 1, 2015, the parent or legal guardian of that child may enroll the child in kindergarten for the 2015­-2016 school year if the parent or legal guardian notifies the school district in writing not later than June 1, 2015, that he or she intends to enroll the child in kindergarten.

If a child becomes a resident of the Bedford Public Schools after June 1, the child's parent or legal guardian may enroll the child in kindergarten for that school year if the parent or legal guardian submits this written notification not later than August 1, 2015 under this subsection.  A school district that receives this written notification may make a recommendation to the parent or legal guardian as to whether the child is not ready to enroll in kindergarten due to the child's age or other factors. Regardless of the district recommendation, the parent or legal guardian retains the sole discretion to determine whether or not to enroll the child in kindergarten if the student is five years of age not later than December 1, 2015.
The State of Michigan requires that all Kindergarten students have their hearing & vision screened.
Monroe County Health Department provides FREE hearing and vision screenings. Call the Monroe County Health Department Hearing & Vision office at (734) 240-7855 to make an appointment at their office at 2353 S. Custer Road, Monroe, MI 48161.
