Kindergarten Registration Now Open!

Carmel Clay Schools’ kindergarten registration for the 2020-21 school year will be available beginning Monday, January 13, 2020. The online registration form can be accessed here: Instructions on how to register can be found on our enrollment page:

Each child of legal settlement shall be eligible for kindergarten providing that s/he has attained the age of five (5) on or before August 1st of the enrolling year as specified in IC 20-33-2-7.

An appeal process is available to any parent/guardian who wishes to enroll their child in kindergarten even though s/he does not meet this age requirement.  The appeal process automatically grants eligibility for early entrance to kindergarten to any child who will be five (5) years of age by September 1st of the enrolling year as verified by an official birth certificate.

When registering children, parents/guardians will need an official birth certificate (not a hospital record) and proof of residency.  Proof of residency consists of a rental agreement, purchase agreement, closing documents or deed and a utility (electric and/or gas) statement. Parents/guardians should also note that immunization records must be submitted to the school by the first day of instruction. Those records may also be scanned and uploaded online, dropped off at the school or sent by a doctor’s office.

More information on kindergarten and the registration process is available on Carmel Clay Schools’ website at:

Parents/guardians are encouraged to have students enrolled by Friday, March 6, 2020.

Questions regarding kindergarten registration and programming should be directed to your child’s school.
