Kindergarten is an important step in your child’s life. At Osseo Area Schools, your child will experience a student-centered program taught by experienced staff who love children and are dedicated to helping your child succeed in school.
To be eligible to enroll in kindergarten, students must be five years old on Sept.1 of the school year they'd start in. If your child does not meet the age requirements for kindergarten, you may wish to consider enrolling in a preschool or prekindergarten program.
Attend the Kindergarten Information Fair on Oct. 26, 2019 from 9:30-11:30 a.m. at Fernbrook Elementary
The fair will feature kid-friendly activities, rides on a school bus, information booths of school, district and community resources, a free school breakfast, and more! Bring the whole family.
Fernbrook Elementary is located at 9661 Fernbrook Lane in Maple Grove.
