Kindergarten Registration

Kindergarten planning and registration for the upcoming 2019-2020 school year is approaching rapidly.  Children five-years-old on or before September 15, 2019 are eligible for kindergarten.


Online Registration

Beginning Friday, February 1 at 8:00 a.m., parents can enroll their incoming kindergartener via online registration.  More detailed information is available via the Ankeny Community Schools website; > Parents > Enrolling Your Student > Kindergarten Registration.


What is Needed for Registration?

Please follow the kindergarten registration checklist, found on the district website, as a guide detailing the required documents necessary for enrollment.  Most of the required documents can be uploaded into your online enrollment application.  However, if you do not have the capability to upload documents or if you need copies made, please submit the required documents starting February 1 to your neighborhood elementary.  The required documents are: 

  • kindergarten informational form
  • home-language survey
  • proof-of-residency
  • proof-of-child’s birth date
  • copy of child’s current immunizations

Informational Meeting

Make plans to attend the parent only informational meeting at your current neighborhood elementary school on Thursday, February 7, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. 


Due to increased elementary enrollment and limited space, parents are encouraged to enroll their upcoming kindergartener based on the process set forth by the district.
