Kindergarten Enrollment

Enrolling for the 2020-2021 School Year

Enrolling your child in kindergarten is an exciting and sometimes anxious step for parents. We want to make enrolling your kindergartener in Groveport Madison Schools as simple and easy as possible for you, but more importantly, we want you to know that choosing to begin your child's education in our school district is a very good decision. Please know we will do everything possible to make sure that your child gets a great start to his/her education - as well as see that he/she has a great experience in which new friends will be made and adventures had! 
Early kindergarten registration begins Wed., April 20 and runs through May 22. Kindergarten students registered in April 20-May 22 will receive a free t-shirt at our Little Cruiser Round-Up event.
To make registering your child(ren) for school as quick and easy as possible we've  created the “SpeedyStart” online registration system. You can complete most of the registration process from the comfort of your own computer. Please do not begin the enrollment process for kindergarten before April 20. After completing the online registration process, you can set up an appointment to come to our Enrollment Center to finish the process. At your appointment, we will review the information you’ve provided online, collect the documentation you’ve brought, and answer any of your questions. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3.
In most instances, online enrollment cannot be completed using a hand-held mobile deviceplease use a desktop or laptop computer to complete the SpeedyStart enrollment process. If you do not have access to a laptop or desktop computer, you are welcome to use one of the computer kiosks we have available in our Enrollment Center. Desktop computers also are available at the Southeast Branch of Columbus Metropolitan Libraries, located at 3980 S. Hamilton Rd. We apologize for the inconvenience.
