Welcome 2023-24 Kindergarten Families!

In Hopkins, our scholars are at the center of everything we do. When students feel heard, seen, and valued, they can do their very best work — that's why love is one of our core values.

We are excited to partner with you and your upcoming kindergartner. We invite you to a series of  year-before-kindergarten events designed to help your family get to know your school community and learn more about our kindergarten program — which is centered around your child's academic, social, and emotional success.  

We welcome you to enroll your child in Hopkins kindergarten!

Our kindergarten options:

  • All-day kindergarten with Spanish curriculum at 6 elementary schools in Golden Valley, Hopkins, and Minnetonka.
  • Chinese immersion kindergarten located at Eisenhower Elementary.
  • Spanish immersion kindergarten located at Eisenhower and Alice Smith Elementary schools.
  • Outdoor Immersion kindergarten at Gatewood Elementary
  • Online personalized-learning at VirtualEDU

Year-Before-Kindergarten Information and Events Coming Soon!

The Hopkins kindergarten team is hard at work scheduling events and putting together helpful resources for incoming 2023-24 kindergarteners and their families. We will be publishing information on this page as soon as it's available. Please check back the second week of October!

We look forward to meeting you!
