We are now accepting applications for the 2019-2020 Pre-Kites and kindergarten classes at the Kigali International Community School. Students who turn 4 years old by September 15, 2019 are eligible for the 2019-2020 pre-kindergarten class. Students who turn 5 years old by September 15, 2019 are eligible for the 2019-2020 kindergarten class. The application consists of three parts:
- Application form and supplemental documents
- Readiness Testing
- Pre-K/Kindergarten Half-Day Session (by invitation)
There will be a testing date in February for all Pre-Kite and Kindergarten applicants. Please check back later for the date.
*Please note that each child will be given a 30 minute time slot. Once we receive the child’s application and all supplemental material, you will be contacted to set up a time slot for the Pre-Kite/Kindergarten Readiness Testing. There is a $50 testing fee that must be paid in full before testing will be completed.
In order to help you measure your child’s readiness and to have a sense of what the Kindergarten Readiness Test will assess, you can download this Kindergarten Readiness Skills document.
Pre-K/Kindergarten Half Day Sessions
After readiness testing, students will be invited to one of our roundup half-day sessions of school to determine each child’s social and emotional readiness for Pre-Kindergarten or Kindergarten. The roundup day will be in February, exact date TBD.
*Current Pre-Kites students will be involved in the Kindergarten roundup session instead of their regular school day.
Please bring a water bottle for your child. A snack will be provided during the testing; if your child has any food allergies, they should bring their own snack with them.
If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
