Kent County Public Schools is pleased to offer FREE full day pre-kindergarten (locally and state funded) to all children who reside in Kent County and will be 4 years of age on or before Sept. 1, 2022. The overall goal of the program is to provide learning experiences to develop and maintain school readiness skills necessary for successful school performance. The program achieves this goal by providing developmentally appropriate experiences that address the cognitive, social, emotional, and physical needs of young children.  

The State of Maryland requires children to attend kindergarten before entering first grade. Children who are 5 years of age by Sept. 1, 2022 must register and attend kindergarten before entering the first grade. There are some exceptions to the law.  

Do you have a child that will be 3 years old on or before Sept. 1? If so, please complete the Kent County Public Schools 3-year-old Program Interest Survey. This information will help determine the need for expanding our current early childhood program offerings.
