Under Connecticut State Law, children must be age 5 by December 31st to attend public school that year, and thus could start Kindergarten as early as 4 years and 9 months old. As a result, most nursery school programs require that the child must turn 3 by December 31st to ensure a fall start of that same year and thus could start Pre-K 3 as early as 2 years and 9 months old.
So, when can your child start school? This chart shows when they are eligible based on their birth year.
