Next Steps and Upcoming Dates

SPRING 2022

New Kindergarten Student In-Person Stop By Visit: Wednesday, June 1
New Kindergarten students visit from 3:45pm–4:30pm, accompanied by a parent or caregiver, at 712 Carroll Street. It’s an opportunity for our new students to meet each other, the Kindergarten teachers, and Administrators.

In June you will receive information about the bus service.

SUMMER 2022

Berkeley Carroll has many options for summer programs. Coming to camp can be a great way for new children to begin to get to know their new school.

A school calendar and other information will be sent to you — be on the lookout for Berkeley Carroll mail. Other information, including the brochure on after school courses and playgroups, will be available online.

You will also be contacted by your "Parent Partner," a current Berkeley Carroll parent who will get in touch to welcome you and answer any parent-to-parent questions you may have.

SEPTEMBER 2022

The first day of school will be Thursday, September 8.

Your child will receive a welcome letter in late August/early September from their teachers and will be invited for a short visit with other classmates before the first day of school.

THROUGHOUT THE YEAR

Parent-teacher conferences: Conferences are generally held in November and March, though teachers are happy to make appointments to meet at other times, should the need arise.

Progress reports: Written reports are sent twice yearly, in January and June.

ANYTIME

Please contact us with any questions or concerns. Call (718) 534.6608 or email Director of Lower School Admission, Beverly Reese at breese@berkeleycarroll.org. Staff are more than happy to answer any questions or will direct you to someone who can.
