It’s that time of year again when we are preparing our lists for next year’s incoming kindergarteners. Parents of children living in Durham and Middlefield who will be five (5) years old on or before January 1, 2016 must register their child to attend kindergarten in September 2015 or apply for a waiver of attendance. In Regional District #13, children may attend kindergarten in either the Contemporary Program or the Integrated Day Program. Parents need to choose the appropriate program for their child prior to kindergarten registration. School visits and information available at the schools will assist parents in making their choice.
The Contemporary Program serves children in grades K-4 and is housed at Brewster School for grades K-2 and at Korn School for grades 3 and 4. The Integrated Day program serves students in grades K-4 at John Lyman School. While the two programs share many similarities, they also have some distinctive differences that must be considered when deciding which program is best for each child.
If you have a child that is eligible to begin kindergarten, please call either school to make sure you are on the list to receive the December mailing that explains the registration process.
