Children must be five years old on or before September 30 to register for kindergarten.

Teaching children at an early age is critical to their success in school. Akron Public Schools offers FREE all-day kindergarten with small class sizes in all its elementary schools as well as FREE breakfast and lunch. All-day kindergarten is a unique option not offered at other districts in the area.
