Age Requirements & Grades

Here we explain your child's year group, based on their current age, and the equivalent in the US school system.

For the 2020 - 2021 school year, children who turn three after September 1, 2020 may still enroll in the Nursery program. However, they will need to repeat Nursery with their age-appropriate cohort the following year. 

Children must be four years of age by August 31 to enter Reception. All children need to be potty trained prior to starting school.
