Kentucky law requires children between 6 and 16 years old to attend school. Any child who turns 5 on or before Oct. 1 can enroll in full-day kindergarten. Families may sign up for the Early Start preschool program if their child turns 4 before Oct. 1 and is income-eligible. Three- and 4-year-olds who will turn 5 after Oct. 1 and who have a special need may also attend Early Start.
