This fall in Fairfax County, an estimated 13,000 children will transition from home or child care to kindergarten. Recently, staff from the Fairfax County Office for Children and Fairfax County Public Schools went live online to answer questions about what families can do to ensure a smooth transition to kindergarten.

If your child is going to be 5 years old by September 30, now is a good time to register for kindergarten.

Search our online database to find before- or after-school care for your child.

If you have children younger than 5, read Fairfax Futures' "Helping Your Child Love to Learn" in English or Spanish.

FCPS' "Success in Kindergarten: Parent Strategies" is available in English, Korean, Spanish and Vietnamese.
