CLEVELAND -- Cuyahoga County has launched a public information campaign to get parents to register their little ones for kindergarten early.
The campaign called "March into Kindergarten" urges parents to begin the registration process now, in the month of March.
The County says registration provides the child with a smooth transition. Early registration also helps the schools prepare to educate all children beginning on the first day of class.
Kindergarten registration requires paperwork be completed including medical information related to immunizations and physicals.
By registering early, parents can avoid paperwork delays that could keep their child out of class.
Early registration also allows the schools and teachers to prepare for the proper number of students and learn a bit about their incoming kindergarten classes.
To find out more about registering your child for kindergarten, call the United Way of Greater Cleveland's 2-1-1 for help.
The March into Kindergarten campaign is a partnership of the Education Service of Cuyahoga County, Invest in Children, Starting Point, United Way 2-1-1, Family and Children First Council of Cuyahoga County, MyCom, and State Support Team for Region 3.
