Kindergarten Readiness

Preparing your child for Kindergarten

We are excited to welcome your child into Kindergarten at Immaculate Conception Academy! To help your child make a smooth and successful entry into Kindergarten, there are several steps you can take.

Parent Timeline

Thinking about enrolling your child in Kindergarten at ICA? Here's a typical timeline of events you can expect to follow. We look forward to hearing from you!

Call: 513-731-0154

Contact the School Office

Call or email the school office expressing interest. From there, the Headmaster will share preliminary information.

Initial Parent Interview

A parent/teacher interview will be scheduled to discuss next steps. We typically schedule these interviews starting in January. You'll receive more information and next steps during this meeting.

Child Screening

A simple child screening test will be set up to determine child readiness. Child screenings typically happen in April & May on Fridays. We notice that this is the best time of the year for children, as they've had the majority of the school year to continue learning.

Observe a Class

Parents can optionally sit in on a kindergarten class to observe parent/student interactions.


Our Kindergarten teachers will reach out with their assessment of your child. If they determine that your child is ready for Kindergarten, registration papers will be sent along with a welcome letter and supply list. You can apply for the following school year.
