There’s something incredibly emotional about registering your little one for kindergarten-one moment they are small enough to carry on your chest, the next they are gaining the independence and self reliance to attend school on their own!

We’ve rounded up every kindergarten and pre-kindergarten program in the Monterey Bay area to help make the process just a little bit easier, along with the age requirements. Most schools require you to bring the following when registering your child:

  • Birth Certificate
  • Vaccination Report
  • Utility Bill to Show Residence

We wish you the best as you find the perfect setting for your kiddo-whether it be public, private, charter or homeschool, Monterey Mommies is here to support your family!

This information is correct to the best of our knowledge at the time of publishing and will be updated each spring (current update-spring of 2017). Please call the school site to check for details such as enrollment availability, tuition and tour offerings. Good luck finding your perfect fit, and please shoot us an e-mail if you find we are missing a great Monterey area kindergarten that just must be added to our guide!
