Default Registering for Kindergarten Mount Pleasant/DI

Moving down in a couple of months...don't have a place yet, but in general, is registering for kindergarten a big deal? Are there waiting lists or testing involved? If I move down in the summer do I just go to the school adminstration with a birth certificate and physical and I'll be all set?

Couldn't really find anything on the internet.

ALSO, I would love to rent a culdesac type house, but I am wondering if the condo and townhouse type developments have lots of kids. After living in the sticks my #1 priority is to have a neighborhood over run with children playing for about a grand give or take a hundred or so....I know, thats a little low for the area.

All opinions appreciated.

The necessary documents you will need to bring are:


1. Current South Carolina Immunization Form

2. Child's Birth Certificate
3. Two proof of residency documents.

(1) Rental agreement/lease or mortgage statement


(2) Current utility bill (cannot be cable or cell phone)

or instead of the south carolina immunization card , an exemption waiver for those choosing to selectively vaccinate or not vaccinate which you can get at the department of health.

from what you are saying you want, you should relaly look into daniel island. we have family there, and they live on a cul de sac street, with kids running and playing, sharing each others yards. very family/kid oriented.

but i am sure those neighborhoods exist in mt p too. maybe someone else can suggest a few?

good luck!

Thanks...I definitely haven't ruled out Daniel Island...I was leaning toward Mount Pleasant because I am so impressed with their Parks and Recreation programs...do you know if Daniel Island compares?

well... honestly i am also very impressed with the mt p park and rec programs! they are really offer sooo much more then the charleston park and rec does. it seems every class i'd like to sign my kids up for is in MT P despite me not wanting to like Mt P when i first moved here...but that has more to do with me not wanting to live in suburbia to begin with, lol. i don't think i would like to live there as my first choice, but then again i would not like to live on daniels island at all. so to each is own. but keep in mind MT P also has the creative spark (this place is amazing!) for classes and then little gym, etc. so lots for kids to do. you can still use the MT P park and rec if you live in Charleston for a small fee more. but then most of the classes for kids over 5 are late and then yo would need to deal with 5pm traffic to get home and that is no fun.
i'd check out the area of MT P around longpointe...it seems closer to every kid activity imaginable
