Full-day Kindergarten

ETSD Full-Day Kindergarten Program Image result for full-day kindergarten

The district offers a tuition-based full-day kindergarten program at each of our elementary schools. The curriculum used in this program is aligned to what is offered in our half-day program; however, extends early reading and math concepts, language development, fine and gross motor skills, related arts and social skills into a complete full-day academic program. 

Registration opens annually for the following school year at the beginning of December. Applications are posted under Announcements as well as on this page as of December 1st. Please be aware as applicants are received, district personnel assign a tracking number to each child who submitted an application. Students are assigned to their home school on a first come, first served basis only*. If the number of applicants exceeds the number of available slots, students are placed on a wait list at their home school and offered placement at another school building.

*If a sibling is already attending the home school, there can be no special consideration.

2023-2024 Tuition-Based Full-Day Kindergarten Program

The application deadline for the 2023-2024 school year was Friday, February 17th. All families that applied were accepted into the program at one of our six elementary schools. Acceptance letters were sent out on Friday, February 24th. Acceptance forms, along with an initial deposit of $500, were due back by Friday March 10th. Once placement into the program was accepted by each family, the final step was to register in the spring at their assigned school. If any family has been accepted into the program and not registered yet, please contact the school office immediately.

There are still a limited number of spaces available at certain schools; therefore, if interested

Please Note: Due to the upcoming November vote regarding free full-day kindergarten for all ETSD students, the annual 2023-2024 tuition rate may be prorated depending on the outcome of the vote. All families in the program should be able and prepared to pay the full tuition-rate of $5,500; however, if the vote passes they will only need to pay the 2023 tuition portion of $2,200 (September to December). Therefore, the August 1st payment only includes the remaining balance for the 2023 portion of $1,700. This will allow for the results of the November voting to occur and determine whether or not there will be any adjustments to the full-year rate.
