Abstract
Kindergarten enrollment has long been believed to enhance school outcomes of elementary school students. The study evaluates the effectiveness of an informal collaborative initiative implemented in collaboration between the academic, school teachers and children families. The initiative mainly aims to improve the enrollment of neighborhood children to kindergarten by having many players, including peers, early childhood education university students, educators, school teachers and administrators.

First day attendance increased in the percentages of children enrolled in the kindergarten level II. A discussion of the potential implications for improving kindergarten enrollment by informal collaborative initiative is also provided.
