• Free All-Day Kindergarten

    Free All-Day Kindergarten
    Free all-day Kindergarten is offered at all Bremerton elementary schools and is available to all students, regardless of where they live. Priority will be given to District residents, families who have child care in Bremerton, and residents of Jackson Park Naval housing. Out-of-District students will be accepted as space permits.

    By state law, children who turn five by August 31 are eligible for Kindergarten. Placement will be based on school/classroom availability. Enrollment for next year will begin in February at each elementary school or the district office located at 134 Marion Avenue N. Please remember to register early, as classes fill up fast.
    Early Entrance Testing for Kindergarten
    Children who turn five between September 1st and October 31st may also be eligible to enroll in Kindergarten if they pass an Early Entrance Test (scholarships are available for free and reduced lunch program participants). Learn more or sign up for testing.

    The testing takes 1.5 hours to complete using the DIBELS (Dynamic Inventory of Basic Early Literacy Skills) and the DIAL-R (Developmental Indicators for the Assessment of Learning).
