  • Kindergarten students should be five years old by September 1. Parents may request early entrance consideration for children turning five by October 31.
  • Early Childhood Screening: This screening is required by the State of Minnesota for all preschool-aged children (ages three to five), before entering public school. If you have already completed screening through Minnetonka, you are all set!
