Registration for Beaufort County children whose parents want them to attend public school kindergarten or pre-K next school year will be held through March 1.

Interested parents with children who will be 5 years old by Sept. 1 should complete kindergarten enrollment packets at the school serving their neighborhood’s attendance area. Children who will be 4 years old by Sept. 16 should be registered for pre-kindergarten at their neighborhood schools.

Because space is limited for Pre-K, 4 year olds will be assessed for possible enrollment during Child Find screenings March 7-11. Decisions on placement for Pre-K will be made at each school after children’s screenings are complete.

For all student enrollments, parents should bring their child’s birth certificate, South Carolina Certificate of Immunization (shot record) and two proofs of residency such as a utility bill showing a home address.
