Welcome to kindergarten! We are thrilled that your child will be joining us. Kindergarten is a year of wonder, joy, friendship and learning. We are excited to take this journey with you and your child!
BSD offers an inclusive, welcoming and vibrant learning community that values the languages, lived experiences and unique contributions of each child. Our curriculum inspires children to think, question and investigate their curiosities. Children are given time to explore areas of interest through play. These experiences foster engagement, a sense of belonging and a deep love of learning.
Learning takes place beyond the school. We're committed to partnering with families to create integrated learning communities in which parents, teachers and administrators learn from one another in support of all children. We look forward to ensuring that your child’s kindergarten experience is positive, nourishing and filled with joyful experiences.
Any child who will be five years of age on or before September 1 is eligible to enroll in kindergarten at their designated neighborhood school. If you're looking for an online learning experience, consider kindergarten at our FLEX Online School.
