The Department of Defense Education Activity wants parents to enroll kindergarten-aged children for the upcoming school year.

To be eligible for kindergarten this fall, children must be 5 years old by Sept. 1. To enroll a child in the military’s school system, parents should have proof of the child’s age (passport or birth certificate), sponsor’s orders, medical records showing required immunizations and, for domestic schools, proof of on-base residence.
