Kindergarten Families

Minnetonka Public Schools provides one of the best Kindergarten experiences in Minnesota. Our primary goal is to inspire in children to love learning through social and emotional teaching strategies. Our robust curriculum balances active, playful, hands-on learning with individual, small and large-group instruction designed to nurture early academic skills and promote social development.

Group Plan for School Tours

We are doing school tours at Minnewashta, and you can schedule by contacting Minnewashta Head Office Assistant, Carol Johnson at 952-401-5500 or We also encourage you to review the following resources to inform your decision about Kindergarten options for your child:

Early Childhood Screening

This screening is required by the State of Minnesota for all preschool-aged children (ages three to five), before entering public school. If you have already completed screening through Minnetonka, you are all set! If this screening was completed through another district, please upload your child’s Screening Summary when you submit the birth certificate and proof of address during registration.

If your child still needs to complete Early Childhood Screening, register here.

Explorers (Child Care)

High quality before and after school childcare programs for children ages three through fifth grade.

Learn more about Explorers.
