District 58 announces 2023-24 Kindergarten Roundup schedule

kindergarten roundup 2023

Visit the District 58 kindergarten resource webpage 

Downers Grove Grade School District 58 invites parents and guardians of soon-to-be kindergarteners to attend Kindergarten Roundup at their future school this March and April. Kindergarten Roundup gives parents and guardians the opportunity to visit their child’s future school, meet the principal and staff, and ask questions.

Children who will be five years old on or before Sept. 1, 2023 may attend kindergarten during the 2023-24 school year. Parents are encouraged to directly call their neighborhood elementary school prior to Kindergarten Roundup to request to be added to any school-specific kindergarten contact lists.

Families may visit www.dg58.org/kindergarten to access the District 58 Kindergarten Resource Guide. This guide includes school boundary maps, kindergarten registration information, immunization requirements, kindergarten curriculum information, the two-way Dual Language Program for kindergarteners, and much more. District 58 will continue to update this page throughout the winter and spring.

Will District 58 offer free full-day kindergarten next school year? This is a common question District 58 has been receiving. District 58 is exploring the feasibility of a full-day kindergarten program and hopes to complete its work and make a recommendation at the Feb. 27 Board of Education Curriculum Workshop. More information will be announced following this meeting, and prior to Kindergarten Roundup.
