Kindergarten

This year, Kindergarten Registration for students entering Kindergarten in September 2024 will be held in February 2024.  Registrations will be accepted ONLINE from February 12th through 23rd, or IN Person.  The date on which you may register your child for Kindergarten in person at Richardson is Wednesday, February 14th in the morning from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.  In early February, instructions and a link will be available here which will take you to the Online Registration portal.

Students who will be turning five years old on or before December 31, 2024, are eligible to start Kindergarten in September 2024.

Due to the growth of our school population over the last several years, please note that we are no longer able to accept registrations from families residing outside of our catchment area.

Families registering their child for Kindergarten who live outside of the Richardson catchment area, and who have other children already attending Richardson will still be accepted, if space permits.  However, they must register at their catchment school and submit a Non-Catchment Application Form to their catchment school.

For verification of your catchment area school, please check the Online School Locator.
