Kindergarten Round Up

Brandywine Community Schools is excited to announce open enrollment for preschool and kindergarten for the 2023-2024 school year. Enrollment is now open for children who will be four years old by September 1 for preschool or five years old by September 1 for kindergarten. 

To assist families in the process, Merritt Elementary will have Kindergarten Round Up on April 12 at 6 p.m. at the school at 1620 Lasalle Ave. Kindergarten Round Up is a night to introduce the Merritt Elementary staff and building, while helping families start the process of enrolling for Fall of 2023. By filling out the enrollment form and having all of the important registration documents the night of Kindergarten Round Up, families will be able to reserve a spot for their child in kindergarten. Important documents to have are immunization records, an official birth certificate (not a photocopy), and proof of residency, such as a utility bill. The evening will be geared towards adults. 

“We hope that when families leave that night, they have a good handle on what the registration process entails and what they might still need to complete or submit,” said Merritt Elementary Principal Matt Severin. “We hope to answer any questions parents have right now, and to give them resources so we can continue to help answer questions.  Kindergarten Round Up is all about beginning the journey in the Bobcat nation!”

Enrollment is ongoing and necessary forms and documentation can be found at or by visiting Merritt Elementary. If you have any questions, please call the school at 269-684-6511.
