In Osseo Area Schools, we know kindergarten is an important step in your child’s life. Our student-centered kindergarten program is taught by experienced staff who love children and are dedicated to helping your child succeed in school. Free all-day, every-day kindergarten is offered in every elementary school.

To be eligible to enroll in kindergarten, students must be five years of age on September 1 of the school year for which admission is requested. If your child does not meet the age requirements for kindergarten, you may wish to consider enrolling in a preschool or prekindergarten program.

In the fall of every year, the school district sends information to families of children who are eligible to enroll in kindergarten the following year. If you have not received a brochure by October 1, you might not be in our school district census. Please call 763.391.7056 to request that a census form be mailed to you to ensure that you receive future communications.
