Early Entrance to Kindergarten
Vermont school districts are not obligated by law to allow student early entrance before age 5. However, in an attempt to meet the needs of individual children, as a service, Burlington School District will consider early entrance requests for students whose birth date falls between September 2nd and September 30th of the year the child turns 5, if requested. Such evaluation is consistent with Policy F 14: Request for K Early Entrance.

- When registering, be careful to choose the correct school year you are registering for. For example, if you are new to BSD and your student needs to begin attending school as soon as possible, you should register using the “2020/2021” section. If you’re registering your kindergartener for 2021, you’ll want to choose “2021/2022.”
