Early Entrance to Kindergarten

Beginning kindergarten is an exciting time in life! Arizona State statutes grant entrance to kindergarten for all students turning five before September 1 of the current school year. The state also allows for Early Entrance to Kindergarten (EEK) for children turning five before January 1 when it is in the best interest of the child. Early entrance programs and policies vary from district to district. Liberty Elementary School District is proud to offer an Early Entrance program for qualifying students.

***The four-month Early Entrance to Kindergarten application and testing window for the 2023-2024 school year closed on June 16th. No further testing or early entrance placements will be made. The application window for the 2024-2025 school year will open on or before February 15, 2024. ***
