Registering & Getting Ready for Kindergarten

We are incredibly excited to partner with you in the next step of your child's formal education! The next steps for kindergarten registration include ensuring your child has completed Early Childhood Screening (ECS) and all kindergarten registration paperwork is completed.

Remember, we're here to partner with you and help in any way we can! If you have any questions, please reach out to us!

Step 1: Complete Early Childhood Screening 

 The State of Minnesota mandates Early Childhood Screening (ECS) for all incoming public school kindergarteners.

If your child has not yet participated in Early Childhood Screening, you can set up an appointment through Big Lake Community Education.

Step 2: Complete Kindergarten Registration

We encourage you to register early. Register in February to receive a $30 community education voucher, or in March and April for a $15 voucher!

Tour Liberty Elementary

Our district's youngest learners start their educational journey at Liberty Elementary School, which houses kindergarten through second grade. Early childhood family education and preschool classes are also held at Liberty, which creates a very smooth transition to kindergarten for children and families.

Prepare your Child for Kindergarten

Liberty is a community where exploration, creativity and imagination make learning engaging; where all love to learn and aspire to reach their dreams! We pride ourselves on our developmentally appropriate practices, our differentiation and our focus on literacy and social/emotional learning.

A Day in the Life

Liberty staff focus on creating a school family, and how each student plays a role in creating a positive, caring and creative learning environment! Our students learn the Little Hornet Way, which focuses on being safe, being kind, and being a learner. This lays the foundation for the district’s Hornet Way behavior philosophy.
