Transition to KindergartenWelcome to the Franklin community! If you are a parent or guardian of an incoming kindergartener, please contact us at 617-559-9500 to register your child. We typically have a meeting for the parents/guardians of incoming kindergarteners in February. In the Newton Public Schools, kindergarten is full day from 8:30 until 3 o’clock on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Tuesday's schedule is 8:30 until 12:30.
