Welcome to the Office of Early Childhood Education.
If you know a child who will be 5 on or before September 1st, it’s time to REGISTER FOR KINDERGARTEN!
During school closures SDP offers four (4) ways to complete Kindergarten Registration: Online, by Phone, In-Person (by appointment only) and by Drop-box. Please visit philasd.org/thriveatfive for more information.
