Madera Unified School District provides Kindergarten classrooms that are inviting, warm and friendly, and staffed with highly qualified teachers. Kindergarten is an exciting and fun-filled year, and lays the foundation for academic, and healthy social and emotional development!
Parents can register their children for MUSD Kindergarten classes March 4-15, 2019, between 8:00 AM – 8:30 PM. Check our website for the school sites dedicated to support Kindergarten registration. Staff will be available to answer questions and assist you with the registration process.
Parents must bring the following documents to register their child for Kindergarten.
If you don’t have a copy of these documents for registration, order these documents as soon as possible, so you won’t delay the registration process. Many states have online access to order birth certificates. Contact your child’s pediatrician to obtain their immunization records.

Children start learning as soon they are born; that makes you your child’s first and most important teacher, a role you will play all of their life. Here are some important parenting tips:
- Read and look at books every day
- Stick to a regular bedtime and wake-up time
- Practice counting real objects — like cereal or crayons
- Talk about their feelings and what kindergarten will be like
- Meet and play with other children their age
- Teach your child to show respect and use good manners
- Find and name letters of the alphabet everywhere you go
- Visit and explore libraries, parks, and museums
- Most importantly, open the channel of communication and talk about school with your child
