Kindergarten Transition


How to successfully register your child for kindergarten.

Kindergarten Registration formally occurs in the spring during the academic school year. Smart Beginnings Western Tidewater helps to coordinate a multi-system Kindergarten Registration Day that includes Franklin City Schools, Isle of Wight County Schools, and Southampton County Public Schools.

Registration is open to all children who reside in one of the three localities and will be 5-years old by September 30. Each year parents or guardians are asked to provide the following information:

  • Birth Certificate
  • Immunization Record
  • Physical Exam Record
  • Social Security Card
  • Proof of Residence (current gas, water, or electric bill in your name)
