To help families prepare for kindergarten and to allow the district to plan for the coming school year, online “kindergarten registration” is offered for incoming kindergarten students. Information is available on the Kindergarten Registration page of our Elementary Education website.
To be eligible for kindergarten in the Lee’s Summit R-7 School District, children must be 5 years old before Aug. 1. For more information about school entrance requirements, you may also reference our Board of Education School Admissions Policy (JEC).
R-7 kindergarten programs focus on a nurturing environment which provides for both academic and social growth while allowing children to begin to develop personal responsibility and independence.
