AACPS Kindergarten Registration Begins April 5

By Nicole Donnelly

Kindergarten registration for the 2022-2023 school year in Anne Arundel County Public Schools begins on April 5, 2022.

AACPS offers kindergarten programs in all elementary schools. Children must be five years old on or before September 1 to be eligible. Kindergarten is required for all students living in the state of Maryland. While Maryland law requires kindergarten attendance, it does give parents the right to delay kindergarten for one year (waiver).

Families are their children's first teachers. These resources provide families with suggestions for simple activities that parents and children can do together to develop children's skills. Additional Family Resources.
