Kindergarten Screening for 2021-2022

Now is the time to get your young student started on the path to success in our highly esteemed school district! Jenison Public Schools Kindergarten screening will take place next week, February 1-5, 2021.

If your child will be 5 years old by December 1, 2021 and you are considering Jenison Public Schools, please complete the online pre-registration form and schedule a screening appointment as soon as possible. All children entering Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten must complete this process.

Jenison Public Schools offers full day Transitional Kindergarten and full day Kindergarten, as well as Spanish Immersion Kindergarten programs for children who will be five years old on or before December 1, 2021.

We believe that all students can learn, through a variety of instructional strategies and supports that meet the needs of each and every student. A creative, nurturing staff delivers a developmentally appropriate, yet challenging, curriculum that makes the Kindergarten experience a powerful foundation for your child’s education.

Each child is unique and their date of birth doesn’t tell the whole story. The purpose of a kindergarten screening is to ensure a child is developmentally ready to start kindergarten and to determine whether any additional classroom supports may be needed. In general, each potential student will be evaluated on a range of tasks including self-care skills, language development, cognitive skills, gross motor skills, and fine motor skills.

The ability to personalize curriculum to be able to meet the needs of students, while addressing the required state standards is a guiding principle for all our staff. 

All Kindergarten programs are available to children who reside in Jenison as well as the surrounding area. Through the Schools of Choice program, Jenison Public Schools accepts students residing in Ottawa, Kent, Allegan, and Muskegon counties without the necessity of a release from the district of residence.

Processes will be in place to ensure individual attention as well as safety per COVID-19 protocols.  Staff members will greet parents and child at the door for their appointment time. When parents sign in, the child will enter the testing area with a screening host. Parents will receive a QR code for the parent presentation that can be viewed in their car as they wait. The screening host will bring their child back to them, share the summary page of the screening, and answer questions. The screening area will be cleaned and sanitized in between each student.  

We’re looking forward to meeting the next generation of Wildcats!

If your child will be 5 years old by December 1, 2021 and you are considering Jenison Public Schools, please complete the online pre-registration form and schedule a screening appointment as soon as possible. All children entering Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten must complete this process.
