Kindergarten Information

Please visit our district page for further information regarding Kindergarten Enrollment.  Please visit our virtual Kindergarten Orientation presentation (coming soon!) and begin the enrollment process today!

Enrollment Information Hotline: 248-956-5250.  Please note that due to COVID-19 restrictions on visitors and volunteers, we cannot offer building tours at this time.

Kindergarten students need to be age 5 by September 1 of the school year in which you are enrolling.  If your child will not be 5 by Sept 1 (but will be 5 by December 1), you will need to contact the district to complete a waiver to enroll your child in Kindergarten.  If you are unsure about your child's readiness, please review this chart of Kindergarten readiness skills and be sure to view the district website for orientation information.

All students enrolling in Kindergarten must have a vision screening completed between the ages of 3-5, prior to entering Kindergarten.  Free vision screening, by appointment, is available to Oakland County residents at two Health Division offices and at the Walled Lake Community Education Center.  Please call 248-424-7070 to set an appointment for your child.

Mary Helen Guest Elementary main office line 248-956-3300. Please call if you have any questions.
