About Early Entrance

  • The Cave Creek Unified School District Kindergarten Entrance Policy states that children may attend kindergarten if they are 5 before September 1 of that school year. This policy does allow for exceptions to be made for children that turn 5 between September 1 and December 31 if they successfully pass the Early Entrance screening.

    The screening is used to measure skills in areas of development that will most likely assure a successful and satisfactory kindergarten experience. These areas include: fine motor skills, gross motor skills, color recognition, rote counting and identifying letters.

    If you are interested in having your child participate in the Early Entrance Assessment for the 2021-2022 school year, please check back here in April for more information and to sign-up for a testing slot. 

    The Early Entrance Screening will be offered twice during the 2021 summer, mid/early June and mid/early July. Testing will be done at the District Office, Conference Room B.  Testing is one on one with one of our Kindergarten teachers. We do not offer any late assessments in August. A $50 non-refundable fee is also required. If you have additional questions, contact Tina Hasher at 480.575.2042 or chasher@ccusd93.org.


    Each School also hosts a Kindergarten Round-Up Day in January or February. This is an excellent opportunity to visit a school site and meet some of our wonderful staff.
