Kindergarten round up is an early registration event for parents to sign their small children up for school. Round ups are typical in many school districts throughout the country. The goal is to introduce parents and kids to kindergarten, and to register many students as early as possible.
Early kindergarten registration allows a district to better estimate enrollment of new kindergarten students. Accurate estimates help in planning teachers and resources. At a typical round up, parents receive information about the school, schedule, activities and expectations. At some round ups, children have a chance to participate in activities with peers, such as reading and games.
