The 2018-19 school year will mark the fifth year of statewide all-day kindergarten. According to Dr. Stephanie Burrage, Assistant Superintendent, Robbinsdale Area Schools, “All-day K provides a strong and comprehensive early learning foundation for students.” 

"We are excited to welcome the graduating Class of 2031," Burrage adds. "We hope families will come and see how our strong program is preparing students to succeed throughout their Pre K-12 experience." 

Early childhood screening is recommended for 3-year-olds. Minnesota law requires developmental screening for all children by the time they enter Kindergarten. For Robbinsdale Area Schools, this free screening is done at New Hope Learning Center. If you have not completed this requirement, please call 763-504-4180 to make an appointment.
