The State of Michigan has changed the age requirement for enrolling your child into Kindergarten. Children need to be five years of age on or before September 1st of the current school year in order to attend Kindergarten for the current school year. There is a link directly below titled "New Kindergarten Age Information" that details the age changes. If you feel your child is ready for kindergarten and he/she turns five from September 1 - December 1, of the current school year inquire about a possible waiver option. This is strictly for children who turn 5 September 1 - December 1, of the current school year only.

You will need to bring the following with you to enroll your child:

Original Birth Certificate
Two Proofs of Residency 
Vaccination Records (Immunizations)

Vision and Hearing
Public Health Code Act 368 of 1978, Section 9307, states that " a parent, guardian, or person in loco parentis applying to have a child registered for the first time in a kindergarten or first grade in a school in this state, shall present to school officials, at the time of registration or no later than the first day of school, a certificate of hearing and vision testing or screening, or statements of exception under Section 9311." The local health department offers this screening at no cost to families and children. The Revised School Code (Act 451 of 1976, Section 380.177) requires that children entering kindergarten present a statement to school officials confirming that they have received the Michigan Department of Community Health Vision Screening, or medical/osteopathic physician, indicating that a child's eyes have been examined at least once after age three and before initial school entry.
