Douglas County School District Kindergarten offers:

  • Structured, Rigorous, Play-Based Curriculum
  • Small Class Sizes
  • Authentic Learning Experiences
  • No Tuition -- Full-Day Kindergarten is Free!
  • Balanced Beginnings -- Staggered Transition to Build Stronger Teacher/Student Relationships and Ease the Transition into School

Balanced Beginnings
Douglas County School District implements a special transition process for our Kindergarten students called Balanced Beginnings. The first days of school will be staggered, with small groups of students coming in rather than the entire class. This eases the transition into Kindergarten and allows teachers and students to build positive relationships, introduce the new environment and routines, and collect informal data as they begin their year with students. Your child's school will provide more information closer to the start of the 2022-2023 school year.

Ensure your student(s) home school is Pine Lane Elementary by checking the districts Boundary Maps.

If you are interested in Early Access to Kindergarten, please access the Early Access for Highly Advanced Gifted Children.


DCSD Preschool Students enrolled before January 1, 2022 will automatically be registered for Kindergarten at their neighborhood elementary school.
