MINIMUM AGE FOR ADMITTANCE TO KINDERGARTEN AND FIRST GRADE  
In California, a child shall be admitted to a school district’s kindergarten program at the beginning of a school year, or later in the same year if the child will have his or her fifth birthday on or before September 1 (EC48000[a]).  This applies to kindergarten programs only.  In 2022-2023, a child is eligible for Transitional Kindergarten (TK) if the child will have his or her fifth birthday between September 2 and February 2.  For first grade enrollment, California law requires a child to be six years old on or before September 1 (EC Section 48010).  School is mandatory for six-year-old students; parents and guardians must enroll their children in school once they reach the age of six (EC Section 48200).
