The Department of Education has a given age bracket for learners. Kindergarteners need to be AT LEAST five (5) years of age before October 31 of the year of enrollment. And so if he or she is turning six (6) on November 1st of the year of enrollment, then he or she should be enrolled in Grade 1. The Department of Education made this chart for you so you would know where your child should be enrolled. Anyhow, last week, all public schools here in the Philippines were having a “Brigada Eskwela 2014”. Brigada Eskwela is happening two weeks before school opening or before classes start.
