Register for Kindergarten 2023-2024

Before you head into Christmas holiday mode, don't forget to encourage friends and family with Kindergarten aged children to register for Kindergarten. Registering prior to the end of January helps us with our planning and staffing and allows us to send you important information in advance. However; with online registration now available, you can also register at any time. Please share this message with your neighbors and we look forward to welcoming our newest students to the OCSB!
