EP Annual Kindergarten Registration Online

Registrations begin Wednesday, April 8, 2020


The East Providence School Department will be conducting its annual kindergarten registration online as its offices within City Hall are mostly closed. Online Kindergarten Registration begins on Wednesday, April 8th for the 2020-21 school year. In prior years parents were required to register in-person at the school administration office in February. Due to the current pandemic the process has obviously changed.

To be eligible for Kindergarten, children in Rhode Island must turn 5 years old on or before September 1st of this year. State policy does not permit early entrance and East Providence abides by this policy.
