Grade Schoolers Directory
Grade schoolers are children who attend elementary school, which includes kindergarten through fifth or sixth grade. Children usually begin grade school around age 5, when they begin kindergarten. Cities, states, or counties typically set "birthday cut-off" dates that help determine when you can enroll your child in grade school. Grade schoolers may attend a public, private, or home school. Grade school helps teach your child important reading, writing, math, and social skills.
