Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2015 - 2016 Regular Session


Posted: December 10, 2014 11:02 AM
From: Senator Stewart J. Greenleaf
To: All Senate members
Subject: Kindergarten starting age
I am reintroducing Senate Bill 313, amending the Public School Code of 1949 (Act 14), to lower the age at which a child may be enrolled in kindergarten. Currently, a child between the ages of four and six years may be enrolled. Under this bill, a child between the ages of three and six years may be enrolled in kindergarten.

I believe that some children are capable of learning at a young age and those children should not be denied the opportunity to begin their education simply because of their age.

Introduced as SB140
