Early Childhood

“An educational program for four year old and five year old children that supports Incarnation’s Kindergarten curriculum – what a gift!”

Incarnation Catholic School has a program that provides four and five year old children with an early start in our Catholic school program.  Our Early Childhood classes are a five day a week program. Families may choose to send children to our half-day program or can choose our Extended Day Enrichment Program to supplement the half day of Preschool and Early Fives.  We now offer three Preschool Classes, two Early Five Classes and three Extended Day Enrichment Classes.

The Early Childhood Programs are a planned part of the total educational program at Incarnation School, and they provide a strong foundation for further learning. The programs are designed to offer children positive academic experiences as they prepare to enter Kindergarten.

  *The Incarnation Early Fives and Preschool Fours meet the standards set by the State of Ohio and the Archdiocese of Cincinnati by using The Big Day for PreK curriculum.
