Kindergarten Entry Age Information

On July 7, 2023, the Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) and the Office of Early Childhood (OEC) issued a joint memo on the recently enacted change by the Connecticut General Assembly to raise the minimum age for automatic entry into public school in Connecticut.

Effective in the Fall of 2024, children will need to turn five (5) on or before September 1 of the school year in order to be automatically eligible to enroll in kindergarten.
