Entering Kindergarten


2017-2018 Kindergarten Registration Packet


Welcome to the Batesville Primary School kindergarten program. BPS is pleased to offer a full day kindergarten program that is safe and nurturing and will optimize your child’s development.

BPS kindergarten teachers understand that this year will be one of the most important milestones in your child’s life – the first year of school! They work hard to ensure a successful adjustment to school because kindergarten will often influence the child’s perception, attitudes, and performance in subsequent school years.

Age Requirements: Any student who is five (5) years of age on or before August 1st is eligible to enroll in kindergarten.

Enrollment Process: Kindergarten registration is held at Batesville Primary School in the BPS school cafeteria and gym areas in the Spring.  Information will be announced at the beginning of 2017 with the dates of registration.  At that time parents/guardians are asked to schedule an appointment time for your child and you to come in.

Documentation necessary for enrollment will be:

  1. original birth certificate
  2. immunization records
  3. custody paperwork (if applicable)

For additional information about kindergarten registration call Bonnie Johnston at 812-934-4509.

Early Entrance Policy: If your child is younger than five (5) as of August 1st but will reach the age of five (5) by September 1st and you wish to enroll him/her in our kindergarten program, then you may do so by completing an application with the principal of Batesville Primary School.
