Welcome to kindergarten in the Anoka-Hennepin School District! In the district's kindergarten philosophy, we believe the following:
Children are valuable and unique individuals, capable of learning.
Children develop socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually with individual patterns of growth.
Children learn best when home, school, and community work as a team.
All-day kindergarten funding
The Minnesota Legislature approved funding for all-day-every-day kindergarten beginning with the 2014-15 school year. All Anoka-Hennepin elementary schools will offer free, all-day kindergarten.

Kindergarten early entrance
A child must be five (5) years on or before Sept. 1 of the year in which he or she enrolls in kindergarten. Parents can apply for early entrance into kindergarten for children who are almost 5 years old.
Parents and guardians of children whose fifth birthdays fall between Sept. 2 and Oct. 31 can submit an application to have students considered for that year's kindergarten class instead of waiting until the next year.
