The State of Connecticut changed the age requirements for kindergarten beginning in the 2024-2025 school year. All children entering kindergarten must by 5 years of age on or before September 1. This is a change from the current kindergarten cutoff date of January 1. RSCO has updated the prekindergarten age requirements to align with the new kindergarten requirements. Therefore, PreK 3 students must turn 3 on or before September 1 and PreK 4 students must turn 4 on or before September 1.
