Get Ready for Kindergarten!

BHM Kindergarten

The BHM Kindergarten Program Includes:

  • FREE breakfast for all kindergarten students
  • Instruction in core areas of literacy, math, science, social studies, health, and visual arts
  • Instruction in specialist areas: physical education and music
  • Opportunities for additional enrichment and classroom activities
  • Lunch and recess time, which provides opportunities for social interaction (Students may either bring a lunch from home or purchase meals through the district's food service program. Information is available to determine if your child qualifies for free or reduced meal prices.)
  • Access to KidKare (before and after school care)


Kindergarten Registration

Kindergarten registration information will be mailed to families beginning in January. Students must be five years old on or before September 1. Kindergarten registration nights are scheduled in February or March.

Early Childhood Screening
Early Childhood Screening is a requirement for entry into all Minnesota public schools. The district provides this free service to all district residents. To make an appointment, please call 763.682.8408.

All students must have the following immunizations before starting kindergarten:

  • DTaP (diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis): 5 doses
  • Polio: 4 doses
  • Hepatitis B (HBV): 3 doses
  • MMR (measles, mumps, rubella): 2 doses
  • Varicella (Chicken Pox): 2 doses

For more information about immunizations, please contact your child's doctor or district nurse Sue Thomson at 763.682.8514.

FREE Breakfast
When the legislature made the decision to fund all-day kindergarten beginning with the 2014-15 school year, they also decided to pay for breakfast for all kindergarten students. Each kindergarten student in BHM Schools will be offered a FREE breakfast at the start of each day.
