Kindergarten Registration

Do you have a child that will start Kindergarten in the 2022-2023 Kindergarten Registration Graphicschool year?
We look forward to meeting all of our new Kindergarten students, and we're excited to get everyone registered and ready for school to begin on August 11!
New Kindergarten students who follow the steps below will receive a Home of a Future Panther - Ready for Kindergarten Yard Sign once you complete the registration process!
Pelham students in Kindergarten through 5th grade attend Pelham Oaks Elementary and Pelham Ridge Elementary. Please visit the Zoning page for details about elementary school attendance zones.

In order to register your child for kindergarten, follow these steps:  

STEP 1 - 
If you were not able to attend one of the Kindergarten Registration events in April, visit the Zoning page to determine which elementary school your student is zoned to attend.

STEP 2 -

  • Enter all required information to set up your account. The account is meant to be created by an adult family member.
  • It is important to create only one account per household so that the system will be able to save and access your information correctly.
Then, Complete Online Registration
