Getting Ready for Kindergarten

With kindergarten registration just around the corner, we are sharing tips to help you prepare and easily navigate this exciting transition.

Forms & Vaccination Records:

Forms requested for kindergarten registration vary by school district. We encourage you to confirm with your child’s school what forms are needed. We ask that the parent or patient portions of the forms be fully completed prior to you submitting a form to us. This includes information such as the patient’s name, date of birth, and any other parent or student information. Also, please be sure to sign all applicable fields for parents and students. Your child must have had a check-up within the past 12-months in order for us to complete their forms. Also, please allow 3-4 business days for forms to be completed.

Required vaccinations for Kindergarten in Ohio include DTap/DT or Tdap/Td (diphtheria, pertussis, and tetanus), Polio, MMR (Measles, Mumps, and Rubella), Heb B (Hepatitis B), and Varicella (Chickenpox). If your child is up-to-date on their check-ups and vaccines, you can quickly obtain a copy of their records through their patient portal.   Once logged in, click My Health, Medical History, and print!

Check-Ups & Health Screenings:

Does your child need a check-up, health screening, or vaccinations soon for school? These are the perfect time to speak with the pediatrician if you are concerned about your child’s readiness or development.

Our schedules are quickly filling for the spring and summer. Don’t miss your chance to get your child’s appointment today! You may also schedule on the on our website or by calling (513) 232-8100 option 2.

We hope your child has a fun, educational, and exciting school year ahead.
