Parents eager to sign their tykes up for kindergarten will have a head start next week when online registration begins for Gwinnett’s class of 2029.

Families of rising kindergartners (those that turn 5 by Sept. 1) can start the 2016-2017 kindergarten registration process beginning Monday by visiting Gwinnett County Public Schools’ website, searching for the “2016 Kindergarten Registration” section and clicking register for the respective schools, according to a GCPS news release.

• Photo ID

•  Proof of custody/guardianship

• The child’s Social Security number
