Kindergarten- Welcome, Class of 2036!

Kindergarten is the first year of schooling for your child, and an important start to their whole K-12 educational experience. It is also a time of personal adjustment and growth, as your child steps out beyond the family to the wider world. We invite you and your child to play, learn and grow together with us. Give your child a great start to their K-12 education with the Tanque Verde Unified School District.  
Agua Caliente Elementary and Tanque Verde Elementary Schools in TVUSD offer free full-day Kindergarten programs. We also offer a fee-based preschool program, with our Tanque Verde Community Preschool program at Tanque Verde Elementary School only.
By Governing Board policy and state law, children enrolling in kindergarten must turn 5 before September 1st of the year of enrollment.

My child turns 5 before Sept. 1, 2022

Congratulations! Your child is eligible to enter kindergarten in fall 2022.
Stop by your neighborhood school to register beginning January, 2022. If you would like to attend a school outside your boundary, please apply for open enrollment* at your desired school as soon as possible. Please note, transportation options will not be available if you choose to select an out-of-boundary school.
Please contact your school for registration forms, requirements and more information.
*Open enrollment acceptance is contingent on availability.

My child turns 5 on or after Sept. 1, 2022

Parents have options for children who will turn 5 between September 1 and December 31.

Option 1: You may request that your child be enrolled in the fee-based preschool options at Tanque Verde Elementary School for 3 to 5 year olds through the new Tanque Verde Community Preschool.

Option 2: You may choose to wait another year to enroll your child in the Tanque Verde Unified School District.
