A child must be five years of age on or before October 1, 2024 to be eligible for enrollment into kindergarten.

The registration process will be completed exclusively online for the 2024-2025 school year. Our registration process is now a two-part registration.

The pre-registration portal link is located on the Student Registration page of the New Providence School District website. Only a Custodial Parent/Legal Guardian can register a student.
If your current pre-kindergarten or kindergarten child will be attending kindergarten or first grade in the New Providence School District for the 2024-2025 school year, you do not have to register your child online through the registration portal. You will receive a notification in August 2024 to update your child’s information as a returning student. If your child is NOT planning to attend kindergarten or first grade in the New Providence School District, please contact the main office of your child’s school as soon as possible.
Should you have any questions about the registration process, please contact our Registrar, Ms. Dena DiRocco at (908) 464-9050 x4221 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
