In the Irvine Unified School District, we believe the goal of kindergarten is to promote a joy of learning in a positive and nurturing environment, which creates critical thinkers, effective oral communicators, and life-long learners. In partnership with parents, we will provide intentional opportunities that meet the emotional, social, physical and academic needs of all learners.
Enrollment for new Kindergarten students for the 2013-14 school year begins March 8, 2013.
Parents of new kindergarten students must pre-enroll online (online data entry process), print two copies of that paperwork, and take it to your neighborhood school to complete enrollment.
Kindergarten Round-Up (orientation) will be conducted at each elementary school on March 7, 2013 . Please contact your elementary school for further information.
The City of Irvine and IUSD presented an information night for parents interested in learning more about the 2013-2014 IUSD Kindergarten Program and enrollment process. Welcome to Kindergarten was held on Wednesday, February 13, 2013. To view the video presentation and download the information packet, please go to www.irvinechildcare.org
Kindergarten Instructional Day
Kindergarten children attend school for 200 minutes per day. One-half of the time is devoted to literacy and math skills in a reduced class size of approximately 15-17 students. Bell Schedules (school day start and end times) are determined by each school, vary from morning to afternoon and are available to view on each school's website.
