Pre-registration for Beaufort County children to attend public school kindergarten or pre-kindergarten next school year will be held Feb. 1-26.

Interested parents with children who will be 5 years old by Sept. 1 can pre-register for kindergarten at the school serving their neighborhood’s attendance area. Parents with questions about school attendance zones should call any elementary school in their area. 

Parents with children who will be 4 years old on or before Sept. 1 can pre-register for pre-kindergarten at their neighborhood schools. Because space is limited for Pre-K, 4-year-olds will be assessed for possible enrollment during Child Find screenings the week of March 1-5. 

Decisions on placement for Pre-K will be made at each school after children’s screenings are complete. Children are ranked in order of greatest need for participation based on the provided list of at-risk indicators.

For all student enrollments, parents should bring their child’s birth certificate, South Carolina Certificate of Immunization (shot record), and two proofs of residency, such as a utility bill showing a home address. 

For more information, call your neighborhood school or the district office’s Office of Early Childhood at 843-521-2399.
