Early Entrance to Kindergarten
The application process for Early Entrance Kindergarten is now closed. For residents new to Bellevue from April 2-August 15, the application process will reopen on July 1-Aug 15 . New residents will have to prove residency from April 2-Aug 15.
The early entrance process involves an objective evaluation of your child’s cognitive, fine motor skills, visual-motor integration, communication, and social/emotional development. To increase the likelihood that your child will be successful in their first year of school, they will be expected to meet standards approximately six months above their chronological age in all areas assessed.
