Countdown to Kindergarten makes registering your child for kindergarten in the Boston Public Schools (BPS) clear and simple! The easy to follow Countdown 5-4-3-2-1 Steps will guide you through the year-long process of visting and selecting schools, registering for school, meeting your assigned school, getting ready for school over the summer, and starting school in the fall. We also connect you to many fun social and learning activities and resources that you can share with your child to help him or her get ready to thrive in school. Remember, you are your child’s first teacher!

Countdown to Kindergarten offers you a range of informative materials to help you make your child’s kindergarten experience a successful one!

You can access our materials a number of convenient ways including:

  1. Downloading from the ‘Your Materials Library’
