    Kindergarten Readiness Checklist

    This checklist is designed to help you look at your child's physical, social, emotional and cognitive development and contains items that are important to your child's success in kindergarten.


    Additional Information re: First Grade Enrollment 

    California law requires a child to be six years old on or before September 1 for the 2014–15 school year and each school year thereafter to be legally eligible for first grade EC Section 48010.

    A child who was legally enrolled in an out-of-state kindergarten for one school year (using that state's requirements), but who does not meet California age eligibility for first grade, may, with parental consent, be enrolled by the district in first grade (EC Section 48011).

    A child who was not age-eligible for kindergarten (that is, the child turned five after September 1 in the 2014-15 school year or thereafter) and who attended a California private school kindergarten for a year is viewed by the CDE as not legally enrolled in kindergarten, pursuant to EC Section 48000 requirements. Therefore, this child, upon enrollment in public school, is enrolled in kindergarten, assessed, and may (but is not required to) be immediately promoted to first grade if the child meets the following State Board of Education criteria, pursuant to Title 5, Section 200:

    • The child is at least five years of age.
    • The child has attended a public school kindergarten for a long enough time to enable school personnel to evaluate the child's ability.
    • The child is in the upper 5 percent of the child's age group in terms of general mental ability.
    • The physical development and social maturity of the child are consistent with the child's advanced mental ability.
    • The parent or guardian has filed a written statement with the district that approves placement in first grade.

    A statement, signed by the district and parent/guardian, is placed in the official school records for these five-year-olds who have been advanced to first grade (EC Section 48011). This action prevents a subsequent audit exception for first grade placement of an age-ineligible student.

    (according to: California Department of Education webpage)

    California law, Education Code 49452.8, requires that all incoming kindergarten students must have an oral health assessment (dental check-up) by May 31. Oral health assessments that happen within the 12 months before your child enters school also meet this requirement. The law specifies that the assessment must be done by a licensed dentist or other licensed or registered dental health professional. You may download the form here.
