Kindergarten

Dates have been set for the Wentzville School District’s kindergarten registration/screening process. This event is for all children who will turn five BEFORE August 1, 2020. If your child has not been screened at the Parents as Teachers office or his/her preschool this year, appointments are required and can be made online starting December 20, 2019. Screening appointments are filled on a first come, first served basis. While every effort will be made to accommodate you during your child’s elementary school date, it is a possibility that you may have to have a screening on another school’s date. Please be sure to check your address with the District’s Boundary Locator tool to determine which school your child will attend prior to scheduling a screening appointment or registering your child for kindergarten. The District has approved new elementary boundaries for the 2020-2021 school year. 

All registration/screenings will take place at the Parents as Teachers Office at One Campus Drive, Wentzville, MO 63385. If your child has already been screened, you will still need to register your child for kindergarten on their school’s registration date at the Parents as Teachers Office. However, you will not need to schedule a time to register, as it is only necessary to schedule screening appointments. Registration is open from 9:00-11:30 a.m. and 4:00-6:00 p.m.
