Kindergarten Information Night

Royal Oak Schools is pleased to welcome children and their families to Kindergarten!

In January, we invite the next group of Kindergarten parents to become acquainted with our district by attending Kindergarten Information Night on Wednesday, January 31 at each of the six elementary schools in Royal Oak, starting at 6:30 PM. More information will be communicated by each school.


Incoming Kindergarten parents can meet teachers and the principal, tour the school, and have questions answered. This event is just for parents, and children should not attend. This is just one of many introductory events Royal Oak Schools has planned for the Class of 2037.

  • It is recommended that you attend the information night for your attendance area school so that you can get more familiar with that school, teachers and principal.
  • If your child is Schools of Choice, they can attend any elementary for Information Night.

Kindergarten enrollment for the 2024-2025 school year will begin on Thursday, February 1, 2024. Enrollments for all students, including Kindergarten and Developmental Kindergarten, are completed online at Royal Oak School District Pre-Enrollment.


From the District homepage, Click on Parents/Guardians, then Enrollment. Once there, expand the “How to Enroll” bar to begin this process. Once you have completed the online enrollment, including Step 5, which is uploading the required documents, our staff will process the enrollment and send a confirmation email. If you need help in completing the online enrollment, please contact the Central Enrollment Office at [email protected] to schedule an appointment for assistance.


Elementary transfer requests will be accepted between February 1 - February 29, 2024.


Things to Know:


1- Michigan State Law stipulates that a child be five (5) years of age on or before September 1 in order to enroll in Kindergarten and Developmental Kindergarten for the 2024-2025 school year. 

2- If a child is not five (5) years of age by the September 1 enrollment eligibility date but will be five (5) years of age no later than December 1, an option for parents or guardians to enroll the child in kindergarten for the 2024-2025 school year is available. An Age Waiver form is available on our district website.
