Free, Editable Kindergarten Certificates and Graduation Diplomas


It’s the end of the school year and it’s time to celebrate the end of kindergarten.

Here are free kindergarten diplomas and kindergarten completion certificates that you can download instantly and print.

End of Year Certificates for Kindergarten

My kindergarten students never actually had a graduation ceremony (with all of the fanfare you might be planning for your own celebration) – but we did fun end of the year celebration alternatives instead.

For our end of the year fun – we liked to do an end of the year countdown using the letters of the alphabet.

We also took lots of end of the year class photos and hosted a little red carpet event in our classroom.

These end of the year printable certificates would be perfect for either graduation or a low-key end of the year event.

I want to support you as you organize, think and teach smart.

About these free diplomas and certificates

You can download them for free and print them at home or at school.

Each one says, “Congratulations to: (student name) for completing kindergarten”

They look terrific printed in color and don’t use up too much color ink to do a class set.

But, they also look fantastic printed on bright color paper too. You can write in your student names or do it on the computer before you print!

I’ve also included one grayscale version that looks great printed on black and white laser printers or school copy machines.

  1. You just saved my life and saved me so much time. Only took 30 minutes to print 18 certificates. Did I mention that graduation/awards are tomorrow!

    Thank you so much!

  2. Hi!
    Do you give these awards even to the kindergarteners that are being retained? You mentioned you have had students not going to first grade. How do you handle that situation. I am having a small celebration (I told parents its not a graduation but end of year recognition celebration).Also it is on zoom due to COVID regulations in school. I want to make it meaningful for parents and kids (all)…but want to tread lightly with this. Thank you for any insight you may be able to share:)

  3. Hi! I love your certificates, but we have 2 teachers in Kindergarten. I’m trying to add an “S” on “teacher”, but I’m having a hard time finding a font to match. Is there any way that you can email me a copy with “teachers” on it??

    Thank you!
