TK-Kinder Enrollment is Now Open!

Get ready to enroll your student with Modesto City Schools! Registration for full-day kindergarten and transitional kindergarten is now open for the 2023/2024 school year!  

As part of California's 5 Year TK Expansion Plan, Modesto City Schools is extending the age of TK enrollment eligibility by an additional two months, based on your students birthday. The goal is for all 4-year old children to be part of the TK-12 school system by 2025. 

For admittance into transitional kindergarten, students must now turn 5 years of age between September 2, 2023 through April 2, 2024. For admittance into kindergarten, students must be 5 years of age on or before September 1, 2023.

Benefits of Modesto City Schools' TK/Kinder programs  include a laptop computer, free breakfast and lunch every school day, priority registration for before and after school programs, access to tutoring, a dual language academy, and more!

Don't wait! Space is limited in the before and after school programs.
