Perrysburg Kindergarten Program - Frequently Asked Questions

• When will I be able to register?
Registration for 2021-2022 school year will open on Monday, January 25, 2021 at 12 p.m. and will remain open throughout the 2021-2022 school year. 

• What is Kindergarten Round Up?
Kindergarten Round Up is a day for parents/guardians to submit required paperwork to complete the enrollment process. NEW this year: students do NOT need to attend Kindergarten Round Up. In an effort to decrease the number of people at Round Up and to provide adequate social distancing, we are asking for only a parent/guardian to attend. Kindergarten Round Up will be held at Perrysburg Junior High School (550 E. South Boundary) on Monday, February 22, 2021.
 
• What is the difference between the half day and full day Kindergarten program?
Perrysburg Schools offers two choices for kindergarten: half day kindergarten or a fee-based all day kindergarten program. Each offers programming that meets the state's academic and social standards for quality educational programming. Families may choose the program that meets their needs. Kindergarten progress is measured with the same assessments in both half day and all day kindergarten.
—Half Day Kindergarten (HDK) - Students receive instruction in math, reading, writing, social studies and science; participate in group and center time and participate in music, art, physical education and STEM class.
—All Day Kindergarten (ADK) - Students receive an extended experience. Although the same kindergarten standards are taught, students have more time for participating in centers and group work and more time to develop social skills.
