    Call the office at 812.522.5621 after Spring Break to sign up for Kindergarten Enrollment.  This will be held at Redding on April 9th,  2019.

    The goal of our kindergarten program is to meet your child's needs not only intellectually, but also physically, socially, and emotionally. Kindergarten is a world filled with letters, numbers, stories, sharing, blocks, puzzles, play, paint, imagination, and creativity! As you talk with your child about kindergarten, remember what that word means..."a child's garden". Kindergarten is an exciting place where children can meet new and different people. It is a place where children are given the opportunity to participate in new and different experiences. A place for children to learn and grow together. At Seymour, we promise to work diligently to provide your child with these wonderful experiences because going to school is one of the most important experiences in a child's life.

    2019 - 2020: A child must be 5 years old on or before August  1, 2019 to enroll in kindergarten, but a school MAY enroll a child and receive funding until Sept. 1. (waived into kindergarten)

    How can you help your child be ready for kindergarten?
    • Speak positively about school.
    • Help you child learn his/her address and telephone number.
    • Work on writing your child's name. Be sure to practice with a capital to start the name and small letters to follow. Example: Sammy Owl
    • Read to your child.
    • Color, Draw, Cut, and Play with your child.
