Kinde Enrollment

2024-2025 Kindergarten Registration is now open!

If your child attends a DCSD Preschool (ECE) Program, they will automatically roll to your neighborhood school.

If you would like them to attend another DCSD school for Kindergarten,
you will need to apply for Open Enrollment to that school. 

Douglas County School District Kindergarten offers:

  • Structured, Rigorous, Play-Based Curriculum
  • Small Class Sizes
  • Authentic Learning Experiences
  • No Tuition -- Full-Day Kindergarten is Free!
  • Balanced Beginnings -- Staggered Transition to Build Stronger Teacher/Student Relationships and Ease the Transition into School

Balanced Beginnings
Douglas County School District implements a special transition process for our Kindergarten students called Balanced Beginnings. The first days of school will be staggered, with small groups of students coming in rather than the entire class. This eases the transition into Kindergarten and allows teachers and students to build positive relationships, introduce the new environment and routines, and collect informal data as they begin their year with students. Your child's school will provide more information closer to the start of the school year.

Ensure your student(s) home school is Pine Lane Elementary by checking the districts Boundary Maps.

If you are interested in Early Access to Kindergarten, please access the Early Access for Highly Advanced Gifted Children.


To ensure your student is to attend Pine Lane, please check the DCSD Boundary Maps
