Children entering kindergarten in the fall of 2023 will need to have reached their fifth birthday on or before January 1, 2024, per the State of Connecticut.

The Connecticut General Assembly passed a new law pertaining to children entering kindergarten for fall 2024. A child must be 5 years old on or before September 1, 2024 in order to enroll for kindergarten for the 2024-2025 school year.

Parents should UPLOAD a copy of the child’s birth certificate (large version), evidence that the child and family are legal residents of Oakville/Watertown (please see link on the left for appropriate documents), and the child's current physical and immunizations performed by a licensed physician (pdf format). Your child’s registration is not complete without these 3 documents.

State law and the Board of Education policy state that a child is to be educated in the town in which he or she resides. It is illegal to misrepresent your place of residence for the purpose of gaining educational services. To ensure that those registering in our schools are legal residents of the Watertown Public Schools, parents in the towns of Oakville and Watertown are asked to provide documentation that proves residency. Proof of Residency is listed in the link to the left, and also below for your convenience.
