Welcome to our Kindergarten Enrollment Website!
This website includes all the information you need to prepare for enrolling your child into kindergarten at Harrisonville Early Childhood Center for the 2021-2022 School Year. To be eligible for kindergarten, children must be five years of age by July 31, 2021 and must live in the Harrisonville school district.
Kindergarten enrollment for the 2021-2022 school year will be done a little differently this year. Current preschool students will be screened while they are at school during the month of April. A copy of the screening sheet will be sent home to parents following the screen. A packet of paperwork will also be sent home with students for parents to complete. State-issued birth certificates are already on file, but we will ask that immunization records are updated and submitted to our office as soon as each student receives their “kindergarten shots.”
Students who are new to our building and will be 5 years old by July 31st, 2021 will be able to sign up online beginning April 5th for a screening appointment which will take place during the week of May 10-14th. There will also be a link for parents to download the enrollment packet to complete. Packets will be available at the screening appointments for those who are unable to access them electronically. To complete the process, a state issued birth certificate and updated copy of immunizations will be required as well. During the week of May 10-14th, one adult will be allowed to accompany the student into the building for the screening and enrollment process. Masks will be required to enter the building.
