We are now accepting applications for the 2017-2018 pre-Kites and kindergarten classes at the Kigali International Community School. Students who turn 4 years old by September 15, 2017 are eligible for the 2017-2018 pre-kindergarten class. Students who turn 5 years old by September 15, 2017 are eligible for the 2017-2018 kindergarten class. The application consists of three parts:
- Application form and supplemental documents
- Readiness Testing
- Pre-K/Kindergarten Half-Day Session (by invitation)
Saturday, February 11 from 8:00AM-12:00 PM*
*Please note that each child will be given a 30 minute timeslot within these hours. Once we receive the child’s application and all supplemental material, you will be contacted to set up a timeslot for the Pre-Kites/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 is scheduled for Friday, February 17 from 8:30-12:30 PM.
*Current Pre-Kites students will be involved in the Kindergarten roundup session instead of their regular school day on February 17.
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.
