Kindergarten Eligibility Starting in the 2014-2015 school year, Kindergarten at Paideia will be a full-day program.
A child is eligible for kindergarten if he or she will be 5 years old on or before September 1 of 2014. For early enrollment of a child, the child must complete an assessment through the resident district at your cost and submit the recommendation for our staff to review for consideration. The State of Minnesota requires that all children complete a free screening to detect any health and/or developmental concerns prior to entering kindergarten in a public school. Screening typically occurs between three-and-a-half and four years of age – through your resident district.
