    Quality early childhood experiences, whether provided by family or a formal program, increase a child’s ability to succeed in kindergarten. School readiness efforts support the development of skills, knowledge, and health. The goal is for every child to develop a lifelong love of learning. To support readiness and development, SCM will: offer a Kindergarten Kickstart Program, support smooth transitions into school, and administer the Kindergarten Readiness Assessment.


      • Children registered to attend kindergarten for the 2024-2025 school year at one of the School City of Mishawaka elementary schools.
      • Non-resident kindergarten students may enroll after receiving their approval letter to attend School City of Mishawaka for the 2024-2025 school year. Please select the assigned school in the enrollment form.

    Kindergarten Kick Start will be taught by our very own School City of Mishawaka (SCM) Kindergarten Teachers and offer developmentally appropriate activities that will include early literacy skills and math.
