Early Entrance Option

Early Entrance
According to Minnesota law, children who are five years old by September 1 of any given year are eligible to begin kindergarten. However, Wayzata Public Schools offers an early kindergarten entrance option for children who will turn five between September 2 and October 15, and reside within the school district at the time of application. Children who demonstrate superior intellectual ability, high levels of academic achievement, and social/emotional development well-advanced for their age may be considered for early kindergarten entrance.
If you would like your child to be considered for early kindergarten entrance, please download an Early Entrance Application.
Applications will be accepted through May 1. District staff will evaluate eligible students from mid-May through early June and will make a decision by June 20.
