• Kindergarten Registration Opens On January 19, 2024

    We are excited to welcome the Sycamore Class of 2037!

    Kindergarten registration for the 2024-25 school year will begin on January 19, 2024. Registrations will not be accepted prior to that date. Children must be 5 years old by September 30, 2024 in order to attend kindergarten.

    Sycamore offers half-day kindergarten in AM and PM sessions. A tuition-based full-day option is also available at each of our elementary schools. Because of the demand, families who are interested in full-day kindergarten are entered into a lottery. You must have a completed registration as well as submission of the deposit and agreement by February 16, 2024, to be considered for the lottery. Lottery results are emailed the week of February 26, 2024.
