Welcome Center Mission:
To provide incoming families a welcoming first experience with the Eastern Carver County Schools while ensuring both the families and the school system obtain the information needed for a smooth first day of school. We are your one-stop for all student registrations in Eastern Carver County!

The first step in enrolling your student(s) in the Eastern Carver County Schools is to spend a few moments here on our website to understand the process and the information we need to successfully complete new registrations.

Entering Kindergarten?
We have a handy kindergarten manual (en Español: Manual de Inscripción del Kindergarten) that should answer most of your questions. Half-day kindergarten is available to everyone at no cost. Full-day kindergarten is available for a fee. If you need child care before or after either kindergarten option, we have a Club Care program. Busing is provided to and from school based on your home or child care address. If your child will be picked up or dropped off at an address other than your home, there is an Alternate/Day Care Address Busing Request form in the kindergarten manual.

For more information about our award-winning kindergarten program, you can also visit the kindergarten website .
