Welcome to Kindergarten!
Incoming kindergartners must be five-years-old on or before September 1, 2024.
Exception: According to Michigan Law, a child may be enrolled in kindergarten if he/she is not five years of age on September 2, 2024, but will be five years of age not later than December 1, 2024 and parent or legal guardian notifies the school district in writing (Kindergarten Waiver Form) that they intends to enroll the child in kindergarten.
Research indicates that developmentally appropriate full-day schedules benefit kindergarten children academically, socially and emotionally. Our principals and teachers understand this and are well equipped to meet the needs of our kindergarten students.
Our kindergarten students begin to learn a whole host of reading, writing and mathematics concepts and learning strategies that give them the foundation for a successful elementary school career in Walled Lake Schools.
Walled Lake Consolidated Schools is excited to offer our families Junior Kindergarten for the 2024-2025 school year! Junior Kindergarten will support kindergarten readiness through a play-based curriculum. Our program will cultivate academic and social-emotional learning along with opportunities for play, creativity, and social skill development.
