  • Important, please read:

    • Has your child registered at any point in the past for publicly funded Act 166 Universal PreKindergarten through CVSD?

    If you answered "Yes" to either one of these questions, please contact your enrolling school’s registrar below for steps to enroll your child in kindergarten.

    If you answered "No" to the above questions, please go to Step 1 below to start the registration process.  

    Step 1: Complete the Online Registration (for students NEW to CVSD only)

    register for kindergarten button Registration is open!

    All incoming kindergarten students must have a completed online registration form before the start of the school year. Ideally, families who know their child will be attending school in the Champlain Valley School District should complete the registration form by February 23, 2024.

    The district also requires every enrolling student to submit the following documents to start school. Families may choose to upload them during the online registration process or they may drop them off at the enrolling school. The district MUST have all three documents on file for your child to attend school. There are no exceptions.

    Step 2: Sign up for Kindergarten Screening and attend the Kindergarten Parent Information Session

    After your registration is complete, you will be contacted by your enrolling school with information about kindergarten screening and the parent information session.

    Step 3: Start preparing your child for Kindergarten

    There are many ways you can get your student excited about kindergarten to help facilitate a smooth transition. We encourage you to drive or walk by your school and use the weekends to play on the school playground. Off to Kindergarten is one of many resources that will help your child and family transition to kindergarten.

    If you have specific questions, please contact your enrolling school.
