Preschool Eligibility

My son will be turning 4 on December 8, 2023. When would he be eligible for public school? I saw an article that pre-school might be expanding soon and wondered when he would be able to go. If he isn't eligible for pre-school, what school year would he be able to start kindergarten?

The 2023-2024 school year enrollment application period for the Estelle V. Malberg Early Childhood Center has closed. Please check the school's website during the 2023-2024 school year for updates on the application process for the 2024-2025 school year. 

Your son will be eligible to start kindergarten in September 2025, as all kindergartners must be five years old on or before October 1 of the school year.
