FOR THE CHILDREN
To register for Kindergarten in New Jersey, your child will need to be 5 years old by the school district’s cutoff date. This varies by district: some schools state 5 years by September 1st in year of enrollment, others state October 1st. There is usually no flexibility with this rule, even if your child is only 1 or 2 days past the deadline. Check with the school for other requirements.
When moving to a new location, it is important to know who to call when you have an emergency or you need help. Below are some organizations you will find useful.
Under the site’s “Child Care 101” tab you’ll find information related to locating quality child care, the types of child care available to you and how to evaluate the child care providers you visit.
There’s also a special section for the military child on the website covering topics such as military fee assistance, payments and provider services.
