Step 1 - Application

After the application has been submitted, the following steps may happen in any order: 

Step 2 - Teacher Information Form

Please ask your child's current preschool/daycare teacher to complete a Teacher Information Form for the year in which he or she is applying. We encourage teachers to mail these forms directly to GDS after completion.  If your child does not attend any type of school setting, this form will be waived from the process.

Kindergarten Teacher Form


GDS may contact your child's current preschool or childcare program to set-up a time to visit your child in his/her current, familiar environment. A family may also request this visit if they feel it would be beneficial and necessary to the application process. 

Step 3 - Parent Questionnaire Form

No one knows your child like you do! Please complete this parent questionnaire form and send it directly to the Admission Office.

Step 4 - Admission Screening

All applicants for Kindergarten are required to participate in a developmentally appropriate screening.

Kindergarten applicants will attend an Admission Screening during which they will work one-on-one with a Lower School faculty member. They will engage in a variety of activities that look at fine and gross motor, language skills, and basic school readiness. 
 
Families will be notified by the Admission Office when screenings are scheduled.

*Please note that if your child is currently in our Early Childhood program, they must go through the screening process. They are not guaranteed acceptance in Kindergarten. Read more information about "Deciding What Comes Next."


Application fees must be received prior to screenings being scheduled.
