All-Day Kindergarten Long-standing Tradition in CPS
Cincinnati Public Schools offers all-day kindergarten in all elementary schools.
Children must be age 5 by September 30 to enter kindergarten. Ohio law requires that children attend kindergarten prior to entering first grade.
Early Entrance to Kindergarten: Younger children who turn age 5 between October 1 and December 31 may enter kindergarten only after passing a test that determines a child's readiness for school. For information on having your child tested for early kindergarten entrance, contact CPS' Customer Help Center: (513) 363-0123
