Kindergarten Age Change

Connecticut has joined the large majority of states in our country that require children to be 5 years old before September 1 to start kindergarten. The cut-off date used to be January 1. This change will narrow the age and developmental ranges of kindergarten classes. It will help ensure kindergarten students arrive ready to learn and thrive.

Glastonbury Public Schools will phase in this change over two years. This will assist families searching for childcare spots that are both hard to find and expensive. It will also help the school system in managing staffing levels. Please visit our Kindergarten Registration website for details of the plan. After you register be sure to click here to find out about Kindergarten Orientation.
