Kindergarten & Pre-K Registration Requirements
Registering your child for pre-kindergarten or kindergarten is an important step for you and your child. It may be your first formal contact and introduction to Mayfield Elementary School.
The staff at Mayfield Elementary School believes this process should be an easy and enjoyable one for you and your child.
- Any child age 4 on or before Dec. 1 is eligible for pre-kindergarten this year.
- Any child age 5 on or before Dec.1 is eligible for kindergarten this year.
At the time you register your child for pre-kindergarten or kindergarten, you must present proof of residency (such as a recent utility bill), your child’s birth certificate, immunization records and a registration form, which is available at the elementary school office. If your child is participating in Mayfield’s pre-kindergarten program, you do NOT need to re-register your child for kindergarten.
The New York State Department of Health has mandated that no pupil can be admitted to school without the following immunizations. Here is a list of the required state immunizations.
The law requires certification of immunization records from either a physician, public health agency or medical facility.
The pre-kindergarten and kindergarten registration process includes a screening of your child in the areas of basic concepts, language and motor skills. The entire registration and screening process takes approximately one hour.
Please call the elementary school office at 518-661-8251 after Feb. 1 to set up your one-hour appointment.
