Full-Day Kindergarten Registration Update

Posted on: January 21, 2021

Full-Day Kindergarten Registration will open at the same time as ½ day registration: February 1st, 2021. The optional full-day program is tuition based and will be filled on a first come first served basis. Enrollment paperwork will be completed online in Final Forms and required documents such as birth certificate and proof of residency will be submitted online, not in-person. Once all required documents are completed in Final Forms, the application will be time stamped and spots will be filled accordingly. You will be notified of your child’s enrollment status once the applications are processed and all available spots are filled.

The optional Full-Day program will be tuition based at a rate of $375 per month. No payment is due at the time of registration. Financial assistance is available based on the Ohio Household Income guidelines.

Please do not attempt to input student information into Final Forms prior to February 1st. The new forms go live on this date, and any information previously entered will be deleted.
