Bainbridge Island Kindergarten Program
Kindergarten is a time of close interaction between school and home.
By working together, children begin another remarkable journey in their development.  
Beginning September 2016, the state of Washington now funds full-day kindergarten for all students five years of age by August 31, 2017.
There is no tuition fee.
Full day kindergarten students will attend school the same schedule as all students at the elementary school.
