Kindergarten Age Has Changed!

Starting August 2014, a child must be 5 on or before July 31 to enter kindergarten.  The change is a result of Act 178, Session Laws of Hawaii 2012. 

We know that the beginning years of a child’s life are critical and don’t want our children to miss a year of early learning. 

To help prepare for this important change, the Executive Office on Early Learning will be providing a series of resources for families, preschool providers, and Hawaii Department of Education staff.
